Default Tiny tiny pictures

The worlds smallest full colour picture;



This photo of the printed picture was taken using a microscope, it's width, from side to side is the same as the thickness of a piece of photocopy paper, now this may seem pretty useless technology, who wants to lug a microscope around to look at pictures, however, the technology used has interesting properties, there was no dye or ink used, the different colours are defined by the size of the quantum dots used, and this has applications in many areas.

The title was supposed to be "Tiny tiny pictures", sorry mistype.
