IBM Announces World’s Smallest Computer

 

– a press release

“The computer lacks detailed specifications, but according to Mashable is smaller than a fancy grain of salt, scaling in at 1 mm x 1 mm.”

For Immediate Release – March 20, 2018

Muncie, Ind. –  IBM has announced the world’s smallest computer at this year’s IBM Think Conference — a showcase of new technologies and innovation. Marked as one of IBM Research’s “5 in 5” — a collection of 5 inventions that will change the world within the next 5 years — the company is putting a lot of faith in this small package.

The computer lacks detailed specifications, but according to Mashable is smaller than a fancy grain of salt, scaling in at 1 mm x 1 mm. If that is not impressive enough, production costs are estimated to be less than 10 cents with power to match the x86 chip popularized in 1990.

According to IBM’s presentation, the vision for this micro-computer is centered around supply chain management and counterfeit protection. Conceivably, this low-budget computer could be attached to products, allowing tracking and verification — an product specification IBM refers to as a “crypto-anchor.”
