Honestly This Compact Crossbow Is Quite Small

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… » 9/22/13 7:52pm 9/22/13 7:52pm

Robotic Hand May Be Tiny, Has Strong Grip

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.

Super Talent 8GB Flash Drive is World's Smallest

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… » 4/08/08 5:34am 4/08/08 5:34am

Asus Shows Off Nova P22 mini-PC, Looks Like a Mac mini Dressed Up in…

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.

Gigashot A100 Series is Small, Full HD Camcorder from Toshiba

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… » 9/25/07 7:27am 9/25/07 7:27am

Palm-Sized Projector from LG Goes with Anything, Rocks the Color

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… » 8/30/07 6:37am 8/30/07 6:37am
