    In Washington, D.C., Dr. Colin Rawlings, scientist, IBM Research, explains how IBM scientists and National Geographic Kids achieved a GUINNESS WORLD RECORDS(r) for the world's smallest magazine cover at USA Science and Engineering Festival on Friday, April 25, 2014. At 11 x 14 micrometers, 2,000 of the magazine covers could fit on a grain of salt. IBM researchers developed the technology to help scientists and engineers prototype a new generation of technologies, from energy efficient transistors for computers to tiny structures to microscopic security tags to prevent the forgery of documents.
