1x10^-9 Scale Models

(+2, -2)
  [vote for,

Nano-scale car models made up of a few atoms with modified buckminsterfullerene tires and carbon nanotube axles. That's all.

Be sure and use a very small painting brush.

Ev'rything's bigger in Texas. Er, Well. [Zimmy, Jul 28 2006]

       Baked? Mind giving a link to a photo - or an electron micrograph, as the case may be?

       Well you could have a model of the galaxy at that scale and it would be quite nice.
marklar, Jul 28 2006

       [marklar] Hmm, don't think so. Our milky way galaxy is said to be approx. 10^5 light years across. A light year is about 9.5x10^12 meters, so your "nano-scale" model would still be almost 10^9 meters across.

       nice, [marklar]. [csea], at least we can sit at the moon by then...

       Wow, [Zimmy] - that's a not-very-big-at-all car.

       Yeah, but the handling's crap. Clarkson said so.

       We should send that link to Top Gear and see if they cover it.

       They'd need a pico-Stig.

       And the suspension is as stiff as a Planck.

       FYI, a model Earth at this scale would be about half-an-inch in diameter.
