July 2, 2013: Harnessing The True Power Of The Atom

Scientists at IBM have created the World's Smallest Movie using a 2-ton tunneling electron microscope and one of the most advanced labs on the planet.

The stop-motion film, A Boy and His Atom, uses animated still photographs of actual atoms to create a short cartoon. You can watch it -- and get the rest of the story about it! -- at the IBM News Room, or go see it where I found it at Topless Robot (theirs has a Star Trek logo made of atoms).

You've really got to watch it to believe it. You know what? I watched and I still don't believe it.
