London Travel in Miniature

Februar 12, 2009

Researchers at Bio Nano Consulting (BNC), London, UK, have produced a miniaturized version of the London tube map, measuring only 2×3 mm. The map was etched using lasers by Dr Richard Winkle, a BNC researcher at Imperial College London, whilst testing the capabilities of a laser micromachining system. The ‚London Nanotube‘ was aptly named as nanotubes are an essential building block for nanotechnology. Dr Mike Fisher, business development director of BNC commented, „This version of the London Nanotube is not strictly on the nanoscale. We believe we can shrink the tube map another 100 times, making it invisible to the naked eye.“
