You're about to see the movie that holds the Guinness World Records™ record for the World's Smallest Stop-Motion Film (see how it was made at ). 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.

Making the World's Smallest Movie

Using this technology you can store more data in less space.
For example, you could carry a copy of every movie that has ever been made, on your own mobile phone.
That's the world's total production of films over the last 100 years, on your own personal mobile phone. Wow!
