These sculptures by London-based artist Jonty Hurwitz are so small that are impossible to see with the naked eye. They are smaller than a hair and a bit bigger that a human sperm but, despite their size, the level of detail is just insane. NSFW for tiny naked women.
Nanomotors are an amazing feat of engineering: tiny gold rods less than a micrometer long, powered by ultrasonic waves to spin at crazy-fast speeds. How fast? Scientists just figured out a way to measure, and it’s astonishing: 150,000 RPM, 10 times faster than the fastest race car engine.
The Blue Morpho butterfly shines such a brilliant blue it almost seems electric. Its secret? Microscopic holes that play with light in an incredible way. And by using nanotechnology, we can replicate those same effects on printed objects, like money. Bling!
