For people who are having trouble understanding what is going on here, the answers are in the short films in the links after the video. Or search for the subject on YouTube. There is a longer video on how they did this that I saw earlier. The idea is to get you to think.

The special effects suck.

It`s a good thing that their research team doesn`t have a lot of time on their hands. Imagine what creative things they might actually come up with then.

So, what are the atoms resting on? Whatever it is, would be made of atoms too. Why can`t we see them?

Repeat yourself all you want, tedap, that doesn`t make it any more right.

Read it again. Your computer does this all the time on the HDD. However, IBM invented a way that can move specific atoms to achieve the highest possible speed and storage space ever achieved on a HHD/SSD or a full array.

I guess i just repeated myself. Oh well.

Tedgp - what? Hardly. Your computer wont be manipulating single atoms. Just because a transistor has been made on that scale doesnt mean its usable. Sure, its very very small, but its not truely on this scale and this sort of control.

And whether IBM discovered it or not,t his has been around a while.

Never trust atoms.
They make up everything.

Cool, but only impressive to those who dont understand that this sort of thing happens all the time in every PC. IBM just found a way to specifically control it.
