Hi All.

I was reading up on nanotechnology today.

came across a nice thread from VonDoomen.

thread can be located below for the people interested.

The Future Is Coming 2: Nanotechnology

so i went on the internet and did some digging.

found some interesting stuff but a lot of it was way above my head.

to much science, math, formulas etc.

but then i saw a commercial on the side of a page that linked me to the following article

my thread is about this article

it's a top 10 list of art on a nanoscale.

i know top 10 lists are a bit cheesy but i just couldn't withhold this from you guys.

so bare with me because here we go!




#10 - The Nano Rose




This rose was created by a Taiwanese person named Pai Chun Wei at the National Taiwan University. It was made using Indium, which I didn’t even know was a thing.

Most people have a hard time making fancy roses out of tomato skins, but this rose is mere hundreds of nanometers across; for perspective, a human hair is between 50,000 to 100,000 nanometers across.




#9 - Nano Explosions




These “explosions” are actually “color-enhanced scanning electron micrographs of an overflowed electro-deposited magnetic nanowire array”. I am not sure what all of that means, but I think it has something to do with zapping tiny wires, taking a picture with an electron microscope and then photoshopping it so that it looks like an army of tiny volcanoes or a nuclear Armageddon on a microscopic scale. This one was created by Fanny Beron from Montreal, and was a first place winner at the 2007 Science As Art competition in Boston.


pretty friggin' amazing if you ask me.
reading up on nanotechnology i've came across a lot of 'doom and gloom' sites/articles.

i am well aware this could be used for nefarious purposes but this just makes me sit back and look at this technology in awe.

the universe is mindboggling big.
this art is mindboggling small.

hope you enjoy

Totaly awsome!! This is the main reason I come to ATS


Star and flag for you!!!





Be safe people

I really enjoyed the visual presentation of the nanos kn0wh0w, thanks. I wonder tho do they have intelligent nanos that can assemble in a controlled way. Like you release them into say the sky or water and then electrocharge them somehow and then they gather into desired pattern no matter the size sorta like the atonamatron in the day the earth stood still. Creating boats aircraft even bio looking creations ect.

snf good find

Hey! You forgot my favorite. Check this out. And Rock on!





The original nanoguitar (top) was made to resemble a Fender Stratocaster. The new, "playable" version is modeled on the Gibson Flying V. Both were made by electron beam lithography, which can create far smaller shapes than earlier methods, at the Cornell Nanoscale Facility. Craigfhead Group

can´t answer your question mate.

haven´t got the knowhow


just like to complement you on your ´out-of-the-box' thinking.

i've seen it multiple times, never complemented you before and i thought this is the time.

thanks for contributing this to my thread.

pretty awesome.

Thanks kn0wh0w, just tryen to keep an eye out for fake invasion practices potentials used to trick the conscious with un imagined visual displays.

NP.

really mindboggling isn't it.

a human hair is 100 micron.
some of these artfigures are no more than 5

Who knew nerds could even do art?
The article you site is a treat as well, witty as the art is difficult to grasp technically. No problem gazing in wonder though.

Glad you liked it.
Found another article for another thread at a later time.

Hard to wrap your mind around this stuff.

Aaaaaa

Ahhhhhh

AhhhhhhHHHHHHHHHH

"Holy carp! Don't Snee"

ChhhhhOOOOOOOOOOoooooooooooooooooooooooooooo

(Awesome art work that's unbelievable! Thanks for posting!

Next one will be one that sparks a little more discission than this one

Another nano guitar (10μm).

So small, it can flow through your blood stream, as it is about the size of a single blood cell (8μm).

The strings can actually be plucked by an atomic force microscope and will resonate, but at inaudible frequencies. The six strings are each about 50 nanometers, or 100 atoms, wide.

So awesome, S&F.

Those smileys makes me think '___', even calls them buddies lol.

Best topic in a while.

Isn't that the truth!

You could hide an awful lot right out in plain sight.
Entire maps, libraries of books.
schematics
little tiny working robots....

Way to many possibilities!
