X-Rays in the Office

Finger X-Ray

An experiment has shown that sticky tape emits X-Rays, enough to scan a human finger. Peeling sticky tape has been known to emit sparks of light that can be seen with the naked eye in the dark, known as triboluminescence, but now there is evidence on the phenomenon.

This is probably another instance of money and time being spent on a study without much real use. I certainly can’t think of any uses for this, however, it is a cool effect. I guess sometimes that’s all that really matters though, not everything needs a purpose in life after all!
