Smallest Computer Ever

Tiny-fingered researchers at the University of Michigan have created this computer, the world's first complete millimeter-scale computing system. It is a prototype designed to be implanted in a human eye, to monitor internal pressure there for signs of glaucoma.




The machine includes a teeny battery, a consolidated radio and antenna, a pressure sensor, memory, and a rather diminutive processor designed to consume extremely little power. For reference it was placed on top of penny to show just how small it is. We have come a long way since computers from the very beginning were room sized until now where they are smaller than a penny. That is not all, in the works are microscopic computers that could create the smallest technological devices of our time. Cant wait.
