Developed by Cornell University researchers, this guitar is only ten micrometers long! How big is that?
It would take one million micrometers to make one meter! The guitar has six strings, and each string is only about one hundred atoms thick. Made out of crystalline silicon it demonstrates new technology for a new generation of electromechanical devices.
The guitar can actually be played, but it’s so small the sounds produced would be inaudible to the human ear.
