Grist for the writing mill:
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.
Transient electronics, as they’ve been dubbed, are a combination of silk and
silicon designed to work seamlessly in our bodies and in our environments. In a
new study, researchers built a thermal device designed to monitor infection in a
rodent and a 64-pixel digital camera--all from dissolvable material.
Can you imagine? A building or a tank dissolving into compost???? Am I reading that right? How about a body? Wow-- more here

Next week while I'm in San Diego, I'm taking extra time to play with my sister, Connie, my cuz Ed, my oldest SisinCrime buddy, Miyoko, and to work on the new series with collaborator Samantha Sommersby. So if I'm AWOL next Thursday, you'll understand why. I'll keep up on Facebook--at least I'll try.
