The world’s smallest motor is constructed from just 16 atoms. Created with an acetylene rotor base, the motor can operate with 99% directional stability at temperatures below 17 degrees above absolute zero. The Swiss scientists behind the project are still working on understanding the processes involved in the molecular machine. A 40-second video is available that shows a video of the motor working along with a computer simulation of the motor.
