Harry Potter inspires engineer for a quick blood type test

There is a scene in the movie, Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets, where Harry Potter writes a question in Tom Riddle's Diary and gets an answer. While watching that scene an engineer got an idea to develop a sensor that can report a blood type result in writing 😲
Don't be amazed! This is a true story of an Engineer Associate Professor Wei Shen, from Monash University, and colleagues.

It's funny how people find inspiration for their inventions at the most unusual places. 😍

I hope to read the Harry Potter series once I retire from work at the age of 80 😁 #off-topic #sorry

Nice one!! Now, anyone can do the blood type test, and all you need to know is the English alphabet. No technical knowledge required. Could be very useful indeed.

This could be the classic example of sci-fi turning non-fiction. 😒
