En­gi­neers are de­sign­ing a new breed of plan­e­tary ex­plor­ers: ti­ny, shape-shift­ing de­vices that ride the wind like dust par­t­i­cles and al­so to com­mu­ni­cate, fly in for­ma­tion and take sci­en­tif­ic mea­sure­ments.The specks might even be the first ex­plor­ers from Earth to vis­it plan­ets out­side our so­lar sys­tem, the de­sign­ers claim. A “smart” dust par­t­i­cle would con­sist of a com­put­er chip about a millimeter wide en­cased in a pol­y­mer ma­te­ri­al that wrin­kles or smooth’s out when elec­tri­cal­ly ... [full story]
