Technology keeps on getting smaller

in Qurator2 years ago


This is my submission for the #Qurator photocontest with the subject "Technology".

Background info:

I've been working in the IT-business for ages and seen the technology becoming exponentially faster and smaller. Moore's law from the 70's (the observation that the number of transistors in a dense integrated circuit doubles about every two years) is still valid.
An iPhone has more computing power as the entire computer system of the Apollo 11 that brought Neil Armstrong and the other astronauts to the moon in 1969.
The first IBM computers took in a complete room.
And nowadays you can ordered a Raspberry Pi, which is a complete computer. I ordered this one for under 30 USD. The board is just 65mm x 30mm x 5mm. It has connectors for a mouse and keyboard and monitor and it's running a small version of a Linux operating system.
It really keeps amazing me...

Ooh a Raspberry Pi Zero, I have to say that I have numerous Raspberry Pi's, from the first incarnation upto the Pi 4 and including the Zero W. It still absolutely astounds me that something this size is a computer, it kind of does not compute lol. Although the Pi Zero is a bit slower, it does have it's uses, although, the Pi 4 for me is brilliant, can't wait to see what the Raspberry Pi foundation comes out with next.

Raspberry pi is really cool. I have used it it and I can confirm that this small board can replace the computer in general.
Very small bit yet powerfully.
Technology is getting smaller and more powerfully day by day.
