In the world of nano technology a group of very forward thinking engineers have developed what has been termed as ‘the smallest Bible in the world’ –
The New Testament scripture, which contains 27 different books is now available on a tiny chip that has been inserted into jewellery.
The company called ‘Jerusalem Nano Bible’ (JNB) have developed and launched their project that brings the possibility of anyone worldwide who may like the idea of keeping a talisman with the scriptures close them at all times to be able to do so.
Each chip is made from a silicon wafer, with their sides measuring a minuscule 0.19 inches (4.76mm).
On the chips, each letter has a width of about 0.18 microns (18 millionths of a metre), so an eight-inch (20.3cm) wafer can apparently contain more than 1,000 Bibles.
An academic scholar validated, with the use of a microscope, that the text was indeed that of the New Testament.
“Our aim is to be able to mass produce it and cater to really every pocket,” said David Almog, head of the company’s marketing and sales department.
Tourists visiting Jerusalem’s holy sites welcomed the Nano Bible concept when introduced to the project.
“The nano Bible concept is fantastic! And I think each and everyone, and not only Christians but those who are into Art, maybe they are Hindu, Sikh, Christian, Muslim or Jewish… all can have either their holy books with them that will give them inspiration throughout life,” said Satish Desai from India.
In the future the company is also planning to produce a nano-sized Old Testament.
