Atom Stars in World’s Smallest Movie

IBM scientists Wednesday unveiled what they called "the world’s smallest movie," which tracks the movement of atoms magnified 100 million times.

The film, "A Boy and His Atom," depicts a character named Atom who befriends a single atom and follows him on a journey of dancing and bouncing that helps explain the science behind data storage.

"Capturing, positioning and shaping atoms to create an original motion picture on the atomic-level is a precise science and entirely novel," said Andreas Heinrich, a scientist at IBM Research.
