I actually like that design of a DIY squat rack; although it would probably be better to have a 4-post cage

It does really seem like it'd be top-heavy especially when putting the weights back on after doing some squats near your max. Pretty easy to tip over and take out the TV and those pretty display cabinets full of expensive figurines.

Innovative way to keep the rug rat still whilst you change his/her nappy I suppose.

While I do agree with you... just for the record, the actual silicon is much smaller than the "chip" that typically goes into a product.

Mind you, not small enough to be injected like the conspiracy theories would lead us to believe.

I don't think even WLCSP even goes that small.

Never mind the battery that powers it!

Actually that is still a packaged IC... the silicon itself is much smaller.

Take a look at this for an example: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Integr...cuit_packaging

Now this is a bit older, but there is discussion of 9 and 7 nanometer feature sizes on chips... that is the size of transistors and interconnects... NOT the size of the chips themselves which can be upwards of 30mm square and larger. No matter what we are talking about, these are all larger than grains of sand... Which is what something would have to be, to be inject-able.

https://medium.com/@ewoutterhoeven/c...2-ce18a44c5f05

Now to give some scale to all of this, back when I was doing cell phone design, we had BGAs with a pitch of .4mm and traces on PWBs that were as narrow as 0.0635mm (2.5 mils). Now these were only in limited areas, used to "break out" DDR memories and make connections to BGAs... 4/4 mils (101.6mm) was a much more desired manufacturing range.

Now no doubt some folks out there are thinking of the "tag" their dog gets at a vet... that is a rather large "package" that is not even active, it is more like RFID, that has to be scanned by a device that "excites" it, before it responds. Yes, those are inject-able, and they leave a noticeable lump just under the skin. And again, none of that is powered.

According to IPC's standard J-STD-012, Implementation of Flip Chip and Chip Scale Technology, in order to qualify as chip scale, the package must have an area no greater than 1.2 times that of the die and it must be a single-die, direct surface mountable package.
So yes, bigger, but not by much. I have heard of ICs being made very small, there was a case of alledged tampering of SuperMicro motherboards that were apparently "bugged" with a small IC made to look like a passive filter. Apparently the "filter" sported a Cortex M0 microcontroller. In that situation, they didn't have to worry about power consumption.

Indeed, but you're talking about a chip which has to be "illuminated" by a beam of RF energy, then perform all its interactions before the power stored in on-chip capacitance dies. The amount of energy it has to work with is minuscule, and every cell of RAM consumes power. Then you're asking it to connect to LTE, query a DNS server, initiate a TCP handshake, negotiate TLS certificates, then spit out a HTTP request over that? Yes, passive devices can do some remarkable things, but this seems a little far fetched.

What's one more entity tracking my every move? I mean I don't own a smartphone, but I'm pretty sure Google (and Garmin) know where I am to within a few feet at all times anyway. Facebook and Amazon probably too.

How would they know... unless you somehow tell them... FB? do they track? Google may happen to take your picture via a satellite or car... Garmin... unless you use Strava or some other tracking media... otherwise, Garmin (GPS) is only a receiver, it doesn't "report back." Amazon... you pretty much have to give them your address.

Cell phones on the other hand communicate constantly... they know where they are via GPS, and they talk to towers to maintain service. And if you have various services turned on in your cell phone, it may regularly report your location.

Oh and I almost forgot... local surveillance cameras... banks, gas stations, convenience stores, your neighbors alarm system... that data could be compiled to find out where you might be from time to time.

Are you important enough to track? Are you rich, wanted, famous, or otherwise sought? If not... probably not. "They" don't care.
