Transient electronics or self-destructing electronic systems work until these are no longer needed, at which point these dissolve completely—dissolution is triggered by even ordinary water in their operating environment. The most immediate application envisioned by developers is for medical devices that dissolve in the human body in a set period of time after being implanted.

Researchers have pulled off a disappearing act for electronic devices that could change the way we think of our gadgets, as well as introduce new capabilities for medical implants and spy gear. In the future, they envision more complex devices that could be adjustable in real time or responsive to changes in their environment such as chemistry, light or pressure.
