World smallest movies!

World’s smallest movies! Individual molecules are used as pixels to create animated movies by good ole IBM. 10,000 atoms and coupla frames to create a movie. Great stuff!

IBM scientists precisely positioned almost 10,000 atoms into nearly 250 images to create the Guinness-certified World’s Smallest Stop Motion Film. The movie, called A Boy and His Atom, was created using the Nobel prize winning scanning tunneling microscope, weighing 2 tons and operating at a temperature of -268 degrees Celsius. Researchers use this tool to understand atomic properties for memory, data storage and future technologies for big data. (Courtesy: IBM)
