Energy in a Digital World

The exhibition COOL X is an expedition to the world of micro- and nanoelectronics, casting a view of the next generation of energy-efficient information and communication technology. Interactive exhibits allow visitors to experience how a chip is produced and structured, and how researchers at the Saxon excellence cluster Cool Silicon seek to limit the dramatically increasing energy consumption by computers, cell phones and global information networks. 

Cool X asks: Are there limits to miniaturization? What does a Eurasian jay have to do with wireless networks? How much energy is in the air? And what can each individual contribute to saving the digital world from the energy collapse?

The exhibition was supported by the excellence cluster Cool Silicon and conceived together with scientists from the research projects.
