The University of Michigan has announced that it has developed a computer that’s so small that it could potentially be implanted into the eyes of glaucoma patients in order to monitor the overall eye pressure.

Patients with glaucoma get excess pressure in their eyeball, which can damage the optic nerve, leading to blindness. This needs to be monitored on a regular basis, and this could be much easier with this little device. It’s being described as the first millimeter-scale computer and it’s just one cubic-millimeter in size. Incredibly, it only consumes 5.3 nanowatts.

The computer is charged up by solar power and is able to transmit the data wirelessly. This little computer could have many different applications, meaning that we should have flea-size cyborgs sometime soon.
