IBM Makes Worlds Smallest Animation - 'A Boy and His Atom'





Pushing the boundaries of animation and filmmaking can be a hard task in 2013, seeing as many new techniques have been tried and repeated by many. Standing out is difficult amongst a landscape of clones, especially as time is precious within animation which may to some extent restrict the physical aspect of the medium. However corporate computer company IBM have set the bar extremely high. With the help of a team of highly skilled scientists, IBM have created the world's smallest stop motion animation. The reason the animation is so small is the interesting part. Individual atoms make up the simple image of the boy. A powerful microscope was used to capture the atom frames, a process which must of taken a long time!

If atoms can be used to create animations, how much further can we venture to use something smaller for creative purposes?
