Communication through chemistry: 'Fuses' convey information for hours

We currently transmit information electronically; in the future we will most likely use photons. However, these are not the only alternatives. Information can also be transmitted by means of chemical reactions. George M. Whitesides and his colleagues at Harvard University have now developed a concept that allows transmission of alphanumeric information in the form of light pulses with no electricity: the 'infofuse'.
