New invention: electric sensors implanted in patient can dissolve after use

Tiny electronic sensors and devices that can be implanted in the human body and then dissolve almost without a trace are getting closer to reality.

A team consisting of Chinese and British scientists has created a dissolvable memristor out of egg proteins, magnesium and tungsten to be used in medical field.

A scientific team, led by east China’s Zhejiang University and UK’s University of Cambridge, has developed a transient memory resistor with dissolvable components, such as egg proteins and some dissolvable metals.
