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. You can check out IBM’s movie, behind-the-scenes footage, video diaries and atomic shorts on different technical aspects of the movie here: youtube.com/madewithatoms

  1. Neat.

  2. More like “If Disney Villains fit some undersexed fangirl’s narrow definition of beauty as defined by years of glossy magazines and perfume ads telling her that in order to be beautiful one had to fit a very specific, unrealistic set of pre-determined criteria which makes you an ugly loser if you don’t fit”
    But I suppose that’s less pithy….

    • Well by the same token the guys are made younger and more muscular. It’s just the most common ideal of beauty that’s all.

    • Someone is angry she couldn’t get into that size 6…

      • Woooow I LOVE how you assumed I was a woman and then accused me of being fat and jealous. Women must love you!

        • I’m glad you liked it :-) (I was just repeating what my wife said. I laughed out loud, so I thought I’d share.)

    • Weird. You blow off someone’s personal preference just because it doesn’t match your own? I don’t get it. You wanted the artist to email you first?

  3. Those are pretty neat drawings

  4. Lena Dunham and Jimmy Fallon are both not funny.

  5. Mr Rogers teaming up with Bill Nye?

    One was a saint among men, the other not so much.

    I don’t think so Tim.

  6. Hades pretty good-looking there.

  7. Lena Dunham is terrible and I’m ready for her to go away.

    Also, was Bill Nye on PBS? I thought his shows were network back in the day.

  8. Looks like those tentacles hit the treadmill. (Bring on the backlash)

  9. Now I’m not being an angry fanboy here. But Gotham is fictional so how could you even attempt to price real estate by the sq ft for Wayne Manor?

    • Because Gotham is basically a darker clone of New York City. “Gotham City” is actually an old nickname for New York from the 1800s.

      • Okay, I can get it. But with so many different iterations and illustrations of Gotham, how can one actually put value on the land? In Nolan’s Gotham, I’d say the land value, especially in the city limits, are high. In Burton’s Gotham, I’d say they would be on the lower end.

  10. man I really miss Bill Nye’s original PBS shows, brings back memories seeing him.
