180414 Our own bodies are filled with sensors!

Hi Cain, thank you for reading our blog and for your question! When we talk about sensors, we are referring to any device that is able to detect an event and measure physical or chemical quantities, such as speed, force, mass.
These technologies are applied to very different fields and they can be pretty simple and well-known objects, like a thermometer, or more complicated and little-known instruments like cantilevers that can detect the presence of certain biomolecules.
Even our body is fully equipped with sensors that we use for many different tasks! For example, we make use of them when we smell a flower, listen to music or taste a good dessert.
