Wasabi alarm system wins Chemistry Prize

The Ig Nobel Prize for Chemistry was awarded yesterday to a Japanese team at Shiga University of Medical Science, for their patented invention of an alarm that wakes people up by releasing a pungent wasabi spray.

 

Ig Nobel honours are given to science that “first makes people laugh then makes them think,” and the awards were given out at Harvard University by seven genuine Nobel laureates.
