Lance Abernethy, a maintenance engineer from Auckland, New Zealand, 3D printed a cordless drill that measures 0.67 inches (17mm) tall, 0.27 inches (7.5mm) wide, and 0.5 inches (13mm) long and holds a 0.02 inches (0.5mm) twist drill. Not happy with that, he is already working on a smaller version.
When most of us think of housing shortages, we think of the micro-apartments of Hong Kong or New York. But Stockholm is in the midst of its own shortage, and with it, incredibly resourceful solutions. Take, for example, this 387-square-foot apartment in an old storage unit.
There's no governing body proclaiming this the world's smallest crossbow, but it's only slightly larger than a full-sized crossbow arrow so it's got to be up there. Joerg designed this crossbow to be safe. The arrow is fully encapsulated so it won't accidentally shoot off in an unexpected direction. You cock the…
Meet Apollo Run, a little three-man band from Brooklyn. They are going to be really, stupidly big soon, so watch this now so you can brag about how you were a fan back when no one knew who they were.
Unlike the world's biggest bugs, these Partula snails are so small they look like little ants wearing a Halloween snail costume. And even though I usually hate bugs, when you miniaturize them, they look kind of cute!
I really want to believe that this comically tiny computer actually works. It's so ridiculous: a mouse smaller than a fingernail, power cords as thin as hair, a monitor smaller than my thumb and the PC tower still boots up?
These cylindrical, bullet shell looking like device is actually an mp3 player that can double as a speaker. It's about 3 inches tall, 1.3 inches in diameter, supports microSD and plays MP3, WMA, APE, etc.
Broken motherboards, transistors and other baubles are given new life by artist Franco Recchia. City life, specifically, as he is an artist who works at the miniature level to recreate Manhattan skylines using nothing but computer junk made useful again.
The smallest solar sensor in the world is 1,000 times smaller than standard systems, and under the right conditions, it could last forever.
Basic details about Twitter co-founder Jack Dorsey's plans for an iPhone credit card payment service have been floating around for some time, but it appears that his SquareUp startup has finally gone live for trial users—and it looks promising.
Elecom's MicroSD USB reader takes advantage of the storage format's miniature size to ensure that the only thing poking out of your computer is a colorful— and dare I say stylish— little nub.
Common thought is to get a big TV. Hell, I want two. But instead, I put a 23-inch set in my livingroom for two months to see what it would be like.
By the numbers, the KDDI Walkman Xmini phone is nothing special. Well, except for a few of the numbers: at 44mm wide and 18mm thick, the 1.8in screen phone is absolutely minuscule.
Scientists have developed a pair of robotic hands that are both strong and sensitive. The tweezers can guide themselves to pick up and move individual cells without damaging them, and have a grip that can be as slight as 20 nanoNewtons of force. In fact, so advanced are the little grippers, that they can be hitched up…
The chaps at Super Talent are not only incredibly modest, talented and super, but they must also be fantastically tiny to have put together the world's smallest 8GB flash drive. (Flawless logic, I'm sure you'll agree.) Retailing at $35, the price is pretty reasonable, at least until you drop it into your chest hair…
It's probably not going to take the desktop world by storm like the Eee has with notebooks—cause it's not $400 for one—but Asus's Nova P22 mini-PC certainly isn't a bad looking machine. It's got a form factor sorta like the Mac mini but it's more angular and less curvy, with a Sunkist accent wrapped around it.
Here's a full-frontal of one of Toshiba's Gigashot A100 Full HD camcorders. The A100F has a 1.8-inch HDD with capacity of 100GB, while her younger sister, the A40F has, yep, 40GB on hers. But they both give you 1920 1080 resolution in MPEG-4 AVC/H.264 format. They're out in Japan mid-November, a month after the less…
LG used IFA to announce the arrival of their first palm-sized projector, the HS101 - which, judging by their comments, they're pretty pleased with. "Industry experts told us it would be impossible to make such a small projector with a 2,000:1 contrast ratio and 100 ANSI lumen output," said LG's head of LCD TV…
