Watch: The World’s Smallest Animation Movie Made with Atoms

Posted on the 03 May 2013 by Nrjperera @nrjperera


This right here is the smallest of all movies ever made. When I say small, it’s not the length its the size. This movie was actually made by researchers at IBM under a micrscope using atoms.

I have no idea how they’ve made it. (I’m no science guy). So, here’s what it says in the video description -: “The ability to move single atoms — the smallest particles of any element in the universe — is crucial to IBM’s research in the field of atomic memory. 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.”

The tiny video currently holds the Guinness World Record for the World’s Smallest Stop-Motion Film. See it for yourself and enjoy. Watch the making of video for more details.
