World's Smallest Computer

On the left, 64 motherboards with two of the world's smallest computers in the top left corner, mounted to the motherboard underneath. On the right, the world's smallest computer mounted atop one motherboard and shown to scale on a pile of salt.

 

Smaller than a grain of salt, IBM's world's smallest computer will cost less than ten cents to manufacture, and can monitor, analyze, communicate, and even act on data. It packs several hundred thousand transistors into a footprint barely visible to the human eye, and can help verify that a product has been handled properly throughout its long journey.
