Dissolvable espionage

Imagine spy devices that dissolve completely into nothingness…

“The technology, which will be announced in a paper this week in Science, is called transient electronics or resorbable electronics. These systems work until they are no longer needed, at which point they dissolve completely away—the dissolution triggered by ordinary water in their operating environment. …

It’s not hard to imagine the uses of small electronic devices that vanish without a trace when exposed to water. Disappearing sensors and other spy gear could be air-dropped or strategically embedded in hostile environments with no one the wiser. …

The work is being funded in part by DARPA, the Defense Department’s mad science arm, which sees a range of applications. To no one’s surprise, though, those uses are classified.”I can’t get into those details,” he tells PM.” Source: http://www.popularmechanics.com/science/health/breakthroughs/transient-electronics-could-dissolve-inside-your-body-13098637?click=pm_latest

The spies can’t tell you what their plans are, but this thriller writer can – a spy device based on the above concept is used by characters in my latest novel THE BLACK VAULThttp://www.spywriter.com/tbv/index.html
