The researchers at IBM used a tool that allows them to carefully move atoms on surfaces, one atom at a time. They are attempting to see how manipulating atoms could help computation and data storage. But then they took a little break and produced a whimsical short film.
In order to see this tiny video, the carbon monoxide atoms had to be magnified about 100,000,000 times. According to researchers, this means that if the atom were actually the size of the orange, then comparatively, an orange would then be the size of the earth.
