Edinburgh University scientists and researchers joined forces with the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology in Germany and the University of Rome, Italy, to develop technology that will allow manufacturers to build supercomputers no bigger than a matchbox.

"Experts at a Scottish university say they have paved the way for the creation of tiny supercomputers which could fit in the palm of the hand. Engineers at the University of Edinburgh studied the behaviour of wires which were 1,000 times thinner than human hair. They then created a tool which could help develop tiny microchips," BBC news reported.

With the increasing shift to smaller sized technology, companies will have to begin inserting GPS systems. If your PC is only as big as a pack of matches, the chances of misplaces it are highly increased!
