At 1 Cubic MM and a resolution of 62,500 pixels this is possibly the smallest camera ever made.

Stephan Voltz, who is the CEO of Awaiba GmbH, says that "at 1.0 x 1.0 x 1.0 millimeters, this camera is as small as coarsely ground grain of salt -- the smallest camera that we are aware of."

The new microcamera was developed that the Fraunhofer Institute for Reliability and Microintegration (IZM) in Berlin, has developed together with Awaiba GmbH and with the support of the Fraunhofer Institute for Applied Optics and Precision Engineering IOF in Jena, Germany.
