World's smallest playable guitar

This is crazy!

http://www.news.cornell.edu/releases/Nov03/NEMSguitar.ws.html

ITHACA, N.Y. -- Six years ago Cornell University researchers built the world?s smallest guitar -- about the size of a red blood cell -- to demonstrate the possibility of manufacturing tiny mechanical devices using techniques originally designed for building microelectronic circuits.

Now, by "playing" a new, streamlined nanoguitar, Cornell physicists are demonstrating how such devices could substitute for electronic circuit components to make circuits smaller, cheaper and more energy-efficient.

nanotechnology is going to CHANGE EVERYTHING if we let it

Insert an "I think" mentally in front of eveything I say that seems sketchy, because I certainly don't KNOW much. Also; feel free to yell at me.
