I was driving to work this morning thinking about pixels. There are well over a million pixels in any "HD" display, whether it's an iDevice, a computer screen, or a flat panel TV; and I suspect that there's more technology in each pixel than...what? It's the end of this sentence that has me stumped.
Is there more tech (R&D, manufacturing processes, patents, etc.) in a single pixel than the Titanic? Apollo XIII? I don't know, but I'd like to.
And the display is rarely the most technically sophisticated component of any given device.
This animated scale of the universe got me thinking about the Eames's Powers of Ten and the many derivative works it inspired.
Can the Internet please get to work on a video of some sort that explores the immense breadth and depth of complexity inside any given gadget?
Thanks in advance.
