This is perhaps the most significant post I've ever entered on AnimationNation concerning the animation process itself. What you are about to witness is nothing less than astounding, miraculous, and any other adjective you can conjure to describe the phenomenon.
Entitled "A Boy and His Atom: The World's Smallest Movie" IBM has created animation through the manipulation of atomic particles! Magnified at 100,000,000 times you can see actual atoms comprising the images of this video! Thanks to long time ANer Greg Boone for the lead on the story. He brought it to our attention on the AN Forum topic. For more info about how the project came about follow this link. See it for yourselves followed by video of how the film was made...
