A Boy and His Atom: The World's Smallest Movie

Uploaded by YouTuber IBM

Published on Apr 30, 2013

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 http://youtu.be/xA4QWwaweWA). 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. Learn more about atomic memory, data storage and big data at http://www.research.ibm.com/articles/madewithatoms

W+K and Aardman Animations broke a Guinness World Record for 'smallest stop-motion animation character in a film' with 'Dot'.
Shot entirely on the Nokia N8, the film showcases the smartphone's 12 megapixel photography capabilities and also celebrates the CellScope, an invetion created by Professor Daniel Fletcher. The CellScope is a microscopic device attached to a Nokia handset, which the Professor used to produce life-saving technology: with his invention he has helped diagnose fatal diseases in remote areas in third world countires.
The N8 campaign brings these types of amazing, authentic uses of technology to life.

Director: Sumo Science
Client: Nokia
Agency: Wieden & Kennedy
Professor Fletcher's invention of the CellScope, which is a Nokia device with a microscope attachment, was the inspiration for a teeny-tiny film created by Sumo Science at Aardman. It stars a 9mm girl called Dot as she struggles through a microscopic world. All the minuscule detail was shot using CellScope technology and a Nokia N8, with its 12 megapixel camera and Carl Zeiss optics.
