Biocompatible Electronics

From NCSU, what appears to be a considerable advance for in-body sensor and computing devices.  Add nano miniaturization and remote control and wireless interaction, this could lead to considerable diagnostic and actuation devices.   Is the brain next?

 " ... “We’ve created a memory device with the physical properties of Jell-O,” says Dr. Michael Dickey, an assistant professor of chemical and biomolecular engineering at NC State and co-author of a paper describing the research.  Researchers have created a memory device with the physical properties of Jell-O and that functions well in wet environments.

Conventional electronics are typically made of rigid, brittle materials and don’t function well in a wet environment. “Our memory device is soft and pliable, and functions extremely well in wet environments – similar to the human brain,” Dickey says ... "
