Artful Chip Photographs

I came across this the other day. It's called The Silicon Zoo. There are some really cool photos here of 'Easter Eggs'; images that have been etched into the design of a silicon chip for no reason other than to something a little different.

The attached image is contained on the die of a RISC processor. Another location contains an image of Waldo.

Anyway, there are some neat photos here. Check them out. You'll have to scroll down the page a bit to get to the list of photos.

LOL I love the HP chip with the half adder and full adder on it. Thats just choice.

Paul Koning of Xedia Corporation has amused us with a nice little anecdote about the Adder snake:

The waters of the Great Flood were receding, and Noah had beached his Ark. The animals were leaving, and he sent them off with the words:

"Go forth and multiply."

Then he heard a plaintive voice from below:

"We can't -- we're Adders."

Looking down, Noah saw the two snakes, slithering off. A month or two later, Noah was wandering about, looking to see how all the creatures were doing. To his surprise and delight, he came across the adders, with a nest full of little ones. He said to them:

"I thought you told me you couldn't multiply?"

They replied:

"We used logarithms."

I'd do like "so-and-so's manhood"

Then draw it, 100 nanometers big, and print "actual size" underneath

Then put it on the next celeron, which kind of goes hand in hand, with smallness downstairs
