People spend hours each day starting at computers and smartphones, but rarely see the minuscule circuits that make them work. But if you take a close look at a microprocessor, you’ll see something amazing. “It looks like a three-dimensional skyline,” says Christoph Morlinghaus. “You can get totally lost in it.”
The images in Computerwelt are rich in detail, each component sharply defined. It does look like you’re gazing down on a city, the buildings casting shadows on the streets below them. It’s a fascinating glimpse into the technology you take for granted, even as you’re staring at it right now.
