Brass dice shrunk to nearly invisible scale

Ryan Block, @ryan

You know, it's really, really hard to write a post about dice without making that World Series Of Dice reference (clikkityclikkityclack! and all that), so we'll save it, but damn if those ain't some small dice. Iriso Seimetsu Co., Ltd.'s gone and created some 300 micron wide machined-brass dice, measuring a scant 0.027mm³, or 0.3 x 0.3 x 0.3mm. The price for knowing you too can jump in on some lilliputian back alley binge drinking dice throwing? For you, kid, ¥100,275 (about $865 US), but do keep in mind these puny tools of chance take 9 hours to make -- that and they'll throw in a special case for carrying 'em around in. Microscopic brass knuckles for enforcing those gambling bets not included, and don't even think about wrapping these around your rear view.
