'Melt in the body' electronics devised

4 posts in this topic

Ultra-thin electronics that dissolve inside the body have been devised by scientists in the US and could be used for a range of medical roles.

The devices can "melt away" once their job is done, according to research published in the journal Science.

The technology has already been used to heat a wound to keep it free from infection by bacteria.

The components are made of silicon and magnesium oxide, and placed in a protective layer of silk.

Sounds good as long as that's all they use it for and it keeps dissolving. So many things start out for one thing and end up getting used for others.

Uh, yeah because anything silicon going into your body and dissolving into your blood stream is a great idea...

Sorry Hilander, my last comment wasn't directed to you at all. I hope you didn't think it was. :)
