This is a 3.5-micron Pac-Man. How big is a micron? At least twice as long as yourcron! *zing!*
Nano PacMan made of copper oxide
Scanning electron microscope image of a copper oxide cluster, 3.5 microns in diameter, prepared by evaporation and condensation over an alumina substrate. The smiley, nose and eye are present in the original SEM image, which has only been color-enhanced.
ZOMG the smiley, nose and eye are from the original picture? WHY THE HELL DOES A COPPER OXIDE CLUSTER HAVE A FACE?! Damn you, secret biological testing! (I'm still waiting on that laser-peen)

Thanks to Jody, who isn't afraid of the world's smallest Pac-Man, he's afraid of the world's largest. Yeah well I'd rather be able to see the thing than have it floating around inside my body. WHICH YOU DO HAVE.
Scientists in Japan recently made the world's smallest ramen bowl, with a diameter of only 1/25,000 of an inch. Which, in scientific terminology, makes it invisible except to superheros that got shafted in the cool powers department (unless they can also see through walls, in ... / Continue →
Dr. Anirban Bandyopadhyah, of the National Institute of Materials Science in Tsukuba, Japan, has developed a chemical "brain" capable of controlling nanobots. This "brain", soon to be known by the few remaining humans not killed in the machine uprising as "Mother Brain" will c... / Continue →
The world's smallest man and woman recently met for a Guinness Book of World Records photo shoot, and my goodness would they make a cute couple. You smell that? Love is in the air. No -- you can't smell it? Well you have to get real low, like knee-height. Pretend your hous... / Continue →
