Tiniest map of the world comes from IBM
IBM scientists have mastered nanotechnology to a level that brings about the possibility of creating the smallest 3D map of the world. They took just over two and a half minutes to do it and there’s a video that explains how. If you’re wondering how small this actually is then get a hold of this. The map is so tiny that 1,000 clones of it could fit on one grain of salt.
There are a few small things done that make it very big impact on mankind. Nanotechnology comes next to invisibility for me at least. You can make really important things seem small.
