    "The thickness of the oscillator shown in the second picture is about a quarter the diameter of the average human hair, or about three red blood cells placed side by side."

    From what I understand, the picture on the front page is of a similar chip to the one that Apple has in the iPhone. Also, I think you guys are misunderstanding what is 1/4 the size of a human hair...

    The actual chip itself can be seen here to give you a better perspective:
