    Michigan Micro Mote: the world's smallest autonomous computer

    It's smaller than a grain of rice and is charged and programmed using light.

    At the moment, that can only TRANSMIT over RF, not receive, so that 2m range does not mean you can form a mesh network with a larger volume. If you can place local nodes everywhere this could be neat for niche applications, but it's not a pervasive scatterable sensor net yet.

    It is foreseen that the M^3 will be injected into the human body
    Uh oh, it's started...

    Re: Michigan Micro Mote: the world's smallest autonomous computer

    I've a question:
    The computer charges its tiny battery from light and even ambient light in a room with no natural sunlight can be enough to power it perpetually.
    and
    It is foreseen that the M^3 will be injected into the human body to provide medical sensor readings including ECG, pressure and temperature measurements. In industrial use the computer can be placed deep into oil wells to sense remaining pockets of oil resources.
    If M^3 is implanted or stuffed down a (presumably dark) oil well or deep in the human body, then how the heck is it supposed to recharge? Or is this really a short-term-use-only device?

    PS, I'm sure the security services are watching this closely ... for the obvious uses.

    Career status: still enjoying my new career in DevOps, but it's keeping me busy...

    Re: Michigan Micro Mote: the world's smallest autonomous computer

    Maybe this device is intended for implanting and daylight recharging as part of the Great Societies obedience to The Beast of Revelation's demand that all who wish to buy or sell display '666' the Mark of the Beast on their forehead where it can easily be scanned by CCTV or on their hands where it can be scanned by POS readers.
    Anyone without 666 will have to rely on charity of friends for food and sustenance.
