Billed as the smallest dice in the world, each one measures
0.3 x 0.3 x 0.3 mm. The tiny dice are painstakingly crafted
one byone from BsBm (brass) in a 9 hour long fabrication
process that relies on the latest in micromachining technology.
Each one weighs 0.00016 grams and the pips measure
0.05 mm in diameter.
While the 100,275 yen (US$870) price tag includes a special
case and the cost of shipping, it does not include the price of
the microscope you will need to make sure nobody cheats at
the craps table in your flea circus casino.

nah, let's get back to work on the minidice, i bet we can make 'em 0.2mm if we can come up with a trillion bucks for the sixty atoms of iron it'll take.
