Nano-Sized New Testament Could Be World’s Smallest Bible
The Jerusalem Nano Bible company said it developed a chip smaller than 5×5 millimeters, which contains the original Greek version of the New Testament. The tiny square chip, with each side measuring 4.76 millimeters, can be embedded inside watches and pendants.
‘’Our aim is to be able to mass produce it and cater to really every pocket. Because this application, the smallest Bible in the world, Jerusalem Nano Bible, can be applied to infinite possibilities in the jewellery industry,” said David Almog, who is in charge of the company’s marketing and sales department.
Each chip is made from a silicon wafer, with their sides measuring 0.19 inches. On the chips, each letter has width of about 0.18 microns, so an 8 inch wafer can contain more than 1,000 Bibles.
The product was validated by an academic scholar who determined that the Greek text on the chip presented to him via microscope was indeed that of the 27 books of the New Testament. Jerusalem Nano Bible’s nomination for the Guinness Book of World Records was submitted last month. The company also announced that future plans include the production of a nano sized Old Testament as well.
