Microchips (ware)

Microchips, nowadays, are 'micro' only by their name; actually, they are more in the realm of "pico". Almost every device in common use today contains one or more chips, but also machines that are not so common, for example plasma flow regulators, fusion reactors, missiles, drones and ships. It must be noted that hacker chips are also Microchips; however, not every Microchip is a hacker chip. In fact, most are not.
