Star Trek Atom Art Created by IBM

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!
