IBM World's Smallest Computer
Micro becomes macro
For a private event with IBM in 2017, AV&C developed a full set of live software exploring IBM’s most furthest reaching research and developments. For one of the technologies, we worked with the material scientists at IBM to visualize the complexity of the World’s Smallest Computer by converting the actual manufacturing files into 3D geometry. The result is a two minute interactive exploration through the architecture of the computer.

The world’s smallest computer is an IBM-designed edge device architecture and computing platform that is smaller than a grain of salt will cost less than ten cents to manufacture and can monitor, analyze, communicate, and even act on data. It packs several hundred thousand transistors into a footprint barely visible to the human eye and can help verify that a product has been handled properly throughout its long journey.
