+ - DARPA funds 'Mission: Impossible' vanishing devices

kc123 (3513107) writes "In an effort to stop technology falling into the wrong hands on the battlefield the US military is funding systems which can be destroyed in a controllable manner. Unlike ordinary off-the-shelf electronics that can last indefinitely, the agency is looking for a way to make electronics that last precisely as long as they are needed. The device could be destroyed either by a signal sent by commanders or prompted by "possible environmental conditions" such as a certain temperature."
