Miniturisation of Technology and Zenith’s Law.


As everybody knows computers were much bigger and bulkier in the past, making them unaffordable, unobtainable, uneconomical, unsustainable, and lots of other things beginning with ‘un’. This is because as you go back into the past every piece of technology gets bigger. It’s a simple result of Inverse Moore’s Law known as Zenith’s Law.

I would love to take my HTC One Smartphone back to the year 1900. Of course the mobile network stuff wouldn’t work, and the battery would run out after 4 days but still, it would no doubt wow them.

Due to the lack of a standardised electricity network and modern plug sockets I would have to use a circa 1900 UK phone charger. Of course this is where Zenith’s Law comes into play. The formula states that in 1900 a phone charger would have to be the size of a concert hall, and that’s exactly what we find.

The ‘Moto 360’ Smartwatch was the size of New Hampshire in 1900, hence the fact it couldn’t go into production.

The standard transistor was the size of a/was a pyramid in Egyptian times, although some absurdly believe it was the product of extra terrestrial shenanigans.



One response to “Miniturisation of Technology and Zenith’s Law.

  1. What amazes me is that there are no ‘complete’ examples of computers from the time of the ancient Egyptians. We know they must have been somewhat bigger than the pyramids. i know people reading this will say “Ah! what about Alan Turing?” I point out that his lifestyle was perfectly compatible with the Ancients….surely this is all just another conspiracy!?
