THIS IS A HIGH PRIZE CHALLENGE.  WE ARE SEEKING IN-DEPTH AND CREATIVE SUBMISSIONS.  

Imagine the tiniest computers, smaller than a grain of rice down to a grain of sand!  Sometimes known as smart dust (or millimeter scale computing), these micro-computer systems may have the following example functionalities:

  • -Sensing & actuating - for example, but not limited to light, temperature, humidity, touch, vibration, magnetism, chemicals, any other known / future technologies
  • -Mobilizing - they might be able to fly, drive, or just stay in one place
  • -Communicating - in varied method
