Star Trek Atom Art Created by IBM

Posted by monique On May - 1 - 2013 0 Comment

IBM scientists have indulged in their “Star Trek” love and created custom “Star Trek” art made out of individual atoms. The scientists used a room-sized microscope to maneuver atoms to form the Enterprise, the Vulcan salute, the star Trek logo and more. They also created a U.S.S. Enterprise the height of a single nanometer and an animation of the Star Trek logo.

Here’s more about the project:

“Using the smallest object known for engineering data storage – atoms – IBM scientists shrunk the big screen down to the atomic level and created “The World’s Smallest Movie: A Boy and His Atom.” The tiny Guinness World Record certified movie is comprised of almost 250 stop-motion frames that were combined into an animated film. To help bring this world of atoms to life, the scientists used their scanning tunneling microscope, a unique two-ton microscope that operates at -268 degrees Celsius to tell a short story of a boy (who’s made of atoms) playing with an individual atom.”

You can see IBM’s movie on the endeavor, behind-the-scenes footage, atomic shorts, video diaries and more at IBM’s YouTube page. Check out the gallery of atom art below the post!

You can learn more about “Star Trek Into Darkness” at its official site, Facebook page and Twitter page. “Star Trek Into Darkness” comes to theaters nationwide May 17.
