IBM Reveals "The World’s Smallest Computer"
on 20 March 2018
At IBM Think 2018, the tech company unveiled what they claim is the world's smallest computer. The machine (smaller than a grain of sea salt) cost less than 10 cents to manufacture and has the computing power of an old x86 chip. That's enough for it to be "a data source for blockchain applications," according to Mashable, who notes that its purpose will be to "monitor, analyze, communicate, and even act on data" pertaining to bitcoin. Right now there's no release date and the application of it, well that's up to the imagination.
