nanoguitar.jpgI was looking through the musical instrument gallery, there’s a lot of really great stuff in there. My favorite so far is the nano guitar. The write-up:

The world’s smallest guitar is 10 micrometers long — about the size of a single cell — with six strings each about 50 nanometers, or 100 atoms, wide. Made by Cornell University researchers from crystalline silicon, it demonstrates a new technology for a new generation of electromechanical devices.

The guitar has six strings, each string about 50 nanometers wide, the width of about 100 atoms. If plucked — by an atomic force microscope, for example — the strings would resonate, but at inaudible frequencies. The entire structure is about 10 micrometers long, about the size of a single human blood cell.

And I can’t help but notice that in the picture the nano guitar looks left handed. Rock!
