IBM has managed to print the cover of last month’s National Geographic Kids on a piece of plastic that is 2,000 times smaller than a grain of salt at a laboratory in Switzerland.

The 11×14 micrometres magazine cover is invisible to the naked eye, and carved out of plastic by a silicon needle, and is confirmed as the smallest magazine cover ever by staff from Guinness World Records.

The project was commissioned by National Geographic Kids, with their young readers selecting the image to be produced in a survey.
