  • Challenge

    The Michigan Micro Mote (M3), developed at U-M, is the world’s smallest computer. M3 opened the door to a completely new class of computing with seemingly limitless applications. The Computer History Museum in Mountain View, CA spoke to EECS about developing an exhibit for permanent display.

  • Solution

    EECS asked Michigan Creative to produce an exhibit to send to the Computer History Museum. Working with EECS faculty and staff, MC developed an exhibit that engages museum visitors with “trivia” questions (e.g., “How many Micro Motes can fit into a thimble?” (Answer: about 150.)) In its first year, the M3 exhibit has become the most popular exhibit at the Museum.
