This is a rather interesting look at exactly what the finer detail of a computer chip looks like.

Zoom Into a Microchip
It is absolutely crazy how tiny we can make things today.
What we’re seeing here is a standard microchip, older though in principle the same as modern cell phone chip.
At the micro level we’re dealing with this comparison: "A micron is 1 millionth of a meter, 10-6 or 10-3 of a millimeter. Very tiny. It is abbreviated with the greek letter for M, or the mu."It takes 100,000 Microns to equal about 4 inches and toward the end of the set we’re in the 1 micron range.

Is this a mosquito? No. It’s an insect spy drone for urban areas, already in production, funded by the US Government. It can be remotely controlled and is equipped with a camera and a microphone. It can land on you, and it may have the potential to take a DNA sample or leave RFID tracking nanotechnology on your skin. It can fly through an open window, or it can attach to your clothing until you take it in your home. Given their propensity to request macro-sized drones for surveillance, one is left with little doubt that police and military may look into these gadgets next.And for all you who automatically say “fake” because you don’t think your glorious government is funding this… do some research.SourceActual research paperActual footageAnother sourceAnd another
