SPICE World Smallest Chess Set
Dr. Tim Dallas, and his students Ashwin Vijaysai and Granapathy Sivakumar, have just created a SPICE Chess Set with the dimension of 1mm x 1mm. This was created out of the MEMS lab (MicroElectroMechanical Systems) at Texas Tech University. The SPICE Chess Set even has the SPICE logo on it :)
Here is the link to 32 pictures of this 1mm x 1mm chess set.
Great job by Dr. Dallas and his students!
Last year, I reported about the world's smallest chess set here. The dimension of that set is 0.25 cm.
Om April 2008, it was reported that a Russian man created a chess set with the dimension of 3.5 mm by 2.5 mm.
The SPICE Chess Set is smaller than both of these sets.
