IBM Creates The World's Smallest Movie, Starring Atoms

  • Meet the world's newest movie stars: carbon monoxide molecules.

    IBM magnified atoms over 100 million times in order to create "A Boy And His Atom," which currently holds the Guinness World Record for World's Smallest Stop-Motion Film.

    The short movie explores the limits of filmmaking not on a grand scale, but rather a microscopic one, by moving single atoms - the smallest particles in the universe - frame by frame. When they're not using this research to advance the field of atomic memory, nanophysicists just like to have a little fun.

    Here's a behind the scenes look at how to movie was made:
