IBM + Star Trek = Atom Art
As part of their most recent endeavor, IBM scientists have created custom Star Trek art made out of individual atoms. Scientists used a microscope the size of a room to maneuver single atoms to form the shapes of the Enterprise, the Vulcan salute, the Star Trek logo, a U.S.S. Enterprise the height of a single nanometer, and an animation of the Star Trek logo (gifs!).
About IBM’s “The World’s Smallest Movie: A Boy and His Atom”
Using the smallest object known for engineering data storage – atoms – IBM scientists shrunk the big screen down to the atomic level and created “The World’s Smallest Movie: A Boy and His Atom.” The tiny Guinness World Record certified movie is comprised of almost 250 stop-motion frames that were combined into an animated film. To help bring this world of atoms to life, the scientists used their scanning tunneling microscope, a unique two-ton microscope that operates at -268 degrees Celsius to tell a short story of a boy (who’s made of atoms) playing with an individual atom.
