DARPA's 'Transient Electronics' Dissolvable Tracking Device

 Imagine electronic medical devices, implanted to heal wounds and then dissipating inside the human body. Environmental sensors dispersed over an oil spill, collecting data before dissolving into the earth. Or clandestine listening devices, sending recorded conversations back to military operatives and then vanishing before they can be found. In the near-future, these three scenarios could become reality. All courtesy of a military-backed venture into “transient electronics.” The idea, in essence, is to flip the hallmark elements of electronics technology — durability and long lifespans — in favor of devices that actually disappear within a set period of time.
