Smallest Computer in the world:
The IBM has unveiled its latest computer that is smaller than the grain of salt!!!! Yes, that right guy. And its size could be 1X1 mm as per our knowledge. That means this is the smallest computer in the world.
This device was unveiled at IBM Think 2018 Conference which started on March 19.The world’s smallest computer comes with an x86 chip, Mashable reports.
This tiny computer is capable of monitoring, analyzing, communicating and even acting on data.
And its also equipped with SRAM for memory and a photovoltaic cell for power.
And it’s very well capable of uplink and downlink communication via LED and photodetector. IBM is reportedly working on microcomputer such as this one to add up with the blockchain system.
For those that don’t know, blockchain is a new way of tracking transactions and currencies around the world, and by creating these tiny chips, IBM wants to start embedding them in products.
such as pharmaceutical drugs.
But along with that one question also arise that how else these computers can be used as the means of harm.
However, we do not need to worry about that for the time being because this chip is still on a concept level, but whenever IBM start the mass manufacturing of the computer, it is expected to cost around or less than $0.10.
But we don’t know how long it will take for this computer to be in the market on a consumer level or will it be for the consumer or only for the big companies only.
But for that, we will have to wait for them to be in the market.
Let’s see how long it’s going to take for that.
