Tiny New Chip Holds Big Promise

"Researchers at Hewlett-Packard have created a chip so tiny that it could almost invisibly store information on ID cards, hospital wristbands, or digital postcards.
The Memory Spot device, roughly the size of a grain of rice, is based on CMOS low-power circuit technology and has a built-in antenna. The chips could be embedded in a sheet of paper or stuck to any surface, and could eventually be available as self-adhesive dots. "
