    A spikey, prickly spinifex grass found in the Australian outback is being farmed commercially to manufacture condoms that are strong but as thin as the human hair. Researchers from the University of Queensland have developed a way of extracting nanocellulose from the grass and using it as an additive in latex production.
    The spinifex grass contains long fibres that can make plastics and rubbers more durable. This could also help manufacture thin, strong gloves that give a sensitive feel when used by surgeons.
