Probes to monitor the condition of concrete

The second post on improvements to concrete in a week, this one’s not quite as outlandish as “bacteria that make concrete heal itself,” but it’s still a useful development: probes, intended to measure the health of concrete structures in a coastal environment, which are sturdy enough to survive in the alkaline conditions inside of concrete for a significantly longer time than previous versions.  You can hook them up to a computer wirelessly and get a decade or more of reports on the condition of a concrete structure.
