I haven't heard of it, even though I work in the semiconductor industry. It might be more like Bio-electrics, or how living things distribute
electric signals around their bodies. You can make a liguid gel charged battery. But if something like that was to have circuits, the circuits would
have to be arranged in an oganized fashion in order to be useful. Nanobots in the gel could do it, smart proteins might work. You just can't pour
it in their and have it work, another process would have to come into play and make the arrangement of circuitry. Now if the gel was a distibuting
mass of components and power, and the little circuit pieces were wirelessly networked rather than actually connected, then maybe it might function.
It would probably then be like an FPGA chip, where the chip is nothing more than a huge array of special gates, and software can rewrite the order and
purpose of those gates in milliseconds to change the function of the chip.
