The Ant And The Microchip

ant with microchip

By David Ponce

This doesn’t really have anything to do with anything, but in the course of our work, we sometimes come across things that fascinate us. In this case, we find the above picture really sort of, well, awesome. In case you can’t see it, it’s just the picture of an ant, holding a nondescript microchip in its pincers.

It’s amazing to see just how small these things get.

  1. That should read “a DEAD ant holding a microchip”. They can’t take electro-scanning pictures of insects that move around. It’s more likely they killed the ant, then glued a chip in it’s mouth, then did the picture. So, who cares about an ant? Well, it’s the principle of the thing. I mean, would it be a cool picture if it was a dead puppy with a micro-chip in it’s mouth? Or a butterfly? Should one kill a creature just to get a cool picture?
