  Small Transistors
In a computer chip there can exist as many as a million transistors. In some of the most advanced chips even several hundreds of millions of transistors are present. To be able to fit that many transistors into something as small as a computer chip, they need to be extremely small. In fact, today's transistors are many, many times smaller then even a single human hair.
