Medical micro chipping is real: Scientists develop tiny electronics that dissolve inside your body.
(NaturalNews) If you thought the concept of medically-injectable microchips was something out of a science fiction novel, think again. A cohort of scientists from universities the world over has developed a new type of implantable microchip capable of performing various pre-programmed functions inside the body for a certain period of time, and later dissolving into oblivion.
Published in the journal Science, a new study on the technology explains how "transient electronics" are the exact opposite of traditional electronics, which are designed with stability and long-term durability in mind. Dissolvable electronics, on the other hand, are specifically designed to melt away once they have accomplished their respective tasks, or at least this is what we are being told.
"A remarkable feature of modern silicon electronics is its ability to remain physically invariant, almost indefinitely for practical purposes," says the study abstract. "Although this characteristic is a hallmark of applications of integrated circuits that exist today, there might be opportunities for systems that offer the opposite behavior, such as implantable devices that function for medically useful time frames but then completely disappear via re-absorption by the body."
One example of this might be implantable chips designed to target open wounds with heat in order to prevent infection, particularly during patients' time at hospitals, says a BBC piece on the subject. Another use might perhaps be to trigger an immune response that targets a potentially deadly infection, seeing as how conventional medicine has largely rejected the much more effective holistic and nutrition-based approaches to preventing and treating disease.
According to reports, test chips have already been created that are composed of a combination of silicon and magnesium oxide, and coated in a protective layer of silk produced by extracting silk from silkworms, dissolving it, and reforming it into a crystallized coating. Depending on the intended lifespan of a particular chip, the thickness of the silk might be extremely thin to last for just a few hours, or slightly thicker to last for days or even weeks.
