What if I tell you the tiniest computer in the world is smaller than a rice grain. If you don’t believe me then after reading this you surely will. So, in March 2019 IBM came up with a computer of the size 1mm X 1mm. Earlier the record of the tiniest computer in the world was held by a team of the University of Michigan and the computer was of the size 2mm X 2mm X 4mm. The word computer creates an image of the desktop, a CPU, a mouse and what not but have you ever thought that you can hold a computer by just the tip of your finger.
But, the earlier record holders i.e. the team of the University of Michigan is questioning the credibility of the tiniest computeras when you power off the pc all the data and programs are still available on the internal storage of the device. And when you switch it on again all your dog videos, documents, games reappear. But, this cannot be seen in the case of the computer which is smaller than a rice grain.
What Technology does this tiny PC use?
The new technology being used in the tiniest computers isphotovoltaics which converts light in electricity. The computers also consist of system memory, a processor, and a wireless transmitter and a receiver which sends and receives data with light. Currently, the small computer can serve as an accurate temperature sensor because it using the electronic pulses it converts the temperature in timed intervals.
Different biological experts are giving there say on this technology as it can be helpful in many ways as the computer is smaller than a rice grain it can be implanted to investigate the variations taking place in the temperature of a tumor and that of a normal tissue and this can help in knowing the success of a therapy. The tiniest computer can be used in many different ways and also can open the gate for foe many more inventions. It will be interesting to see if an even smaller the computer is being invented but for that, we have to surely wait for a while.
