Jerusalem company debuts Nano-bible
A Jerusalem Nano Bible company has developed a tiny version of the bible which can fit into your pocket and fingernails.
Measuring less than 0.2 inches (5mm) across, the company is now seeking validation from the Guinness World Records for the new invention to be named the world's smallest Bible.
The current smallest bible according to The Guiness World Records measures 1.1 x 1.3 x 0.39 inches (2.8 x 3.4 x 1.0 cm).
Each chip is made from a silicon wafer, with their sides measuring a minuscule 0.19 inches (4.76mm). On the chips, each letter with 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.
According to , an academic scholar validated, with the use of a microscope, that the text was indeed that of the New Testament.
The tiny biblical text uses the Greek version of the New Testament, Textus Receptus, or “received text” in Latin.
“Our aim is to be able to mass produce it and cater to really every pocket. Because this application, the smallest Bible in the world, Jerusalem Nano Bible, can be applied to infinite possibilities in the jewellery industry,” head of the company's marketing and sales department, David Almog, said.
