Recent technological advances in chemical engineering have brought forth the invention of the 'Bionic Nose,' a welcome addition in today's swift-moving society, where news of criminal activity and health issues bombard the media by the minute.

Unlike conventional devices in use, this sensational sniffer developed by Tel Aviv University amplifies molecules to a detectable level. Some primary applications include detecting odors which are specific to certain diseases and trace amounts of chemicals used to make bombs.

Of course, this unit is not a prosthetic, but it is still a notch in the belt for the innovative good guys.
