Would you eat a robot? Swiss scientists want to make completely edible electronics, but I’m not sure I want to take a bite out of R2D2 anytime soon

Swiss scientists from EPFL (École Spéciale de Lausanne) are working with researchers from other universities to create robots that are not only functional, but also biodegradable and safe to eat.

These robots can potentially reduce electronic waste, deliver food and medicine, monitor health and provide new culinary experiences.
