A Boy And His Atom: The World’s Smallest Movie

Strange, check, awesome, check, science, check. Enjoy!

That movie that holds the Guinness World Records™ record for the World’s Smallest Stop-Motion Film. The ability to move single atoms is awesome but even nanophysicists need to have a little fun. In that spirit, IBM researchers used a scanning tunneling microscope to move thousands of carbon monoxide molecules (two atoms stacked on top of each other), all in pursuit of making a movie so small it can be seen only when you magnify it 100 million times. A movie made with atoms. Learn more about atomic memory, data storage and big data at http://www.ibm.com/madewithatoms
