WHITE PLAINS, N.Y. (AP) - IBM says it has made the world's tiniest stop-motion movie.
It's a one-minute video in which individual carbon monoxide molecules are rearranged to show a boy dancing and bouncing on a trampoline.
Each frame measures 45 by 25 nanometers. There are 25 million nanometers in an inch.
The lead scientist says it's the first time anything so small has been maneuvered to tell a narrative.
Hugely magnified, the movie is reminiscent of early video games.
It was made using a microscope that magnifies the surface over 100 million times. A tiny needle moved the molecules across a copper surface.
