IBM Unveiled World's Smallest Computer

Technology Inceptions

Can you imagine a computer about the size of a grain of salt? IBM just did it. At its 'Think 2018' conference, the International Business Machines corporation presented before the world the biggest astonishment in the tech world. The computer is about 1mm x 1mm size. That is the average size of a salt grain.

The new prototype device, which is fully standalone, is composed of several hundred thousand transistors, a live memory, and a photovoltaic power supply. Not only that it features a tiny form factor, but the production cost (around 10 cents per unit), is also minuscule.

Each of these computers will have the processing power of a 1990s x86 desktop. It can even record blockchain data to combat fraud.

The main goal behind developing such tiny computer is to to attach them to tags, or even insert them into products so that they can prove authenticity and record tracking information.
