Dissolving Electronics

by Christopher Paul on September 28, 2012

Kyle Baxter pointed me to this article on dissolving electronics:

A new class of electronics can dissolve and disappear on a pre-set schedule, within a few minutes or a few years, depending on when you want them to go away. They could live in the body and deliver drugs, they could stick on the exterior of buildings or tanks, and they can become compost instead of metal scrap–in other words, they turn the common conception of electronics completely upside down.

Think of the possibilities.
