Feel The Noise

I try to split the difference between being fairly clever and technical, and still primitive.

Axe Victim …

A nanoguitar made at Cornell University, New York, in 1997, is the smallest guitar in the world. Carved out of crystalline silicon, the instrument is only 10 micrometres long, the size of a single cell, and each of its six strings is 50 nanometres or 100 atoms wide. There is no suitable plectrum with which to play it but if plucked by an atomic force microscope, for example, the strings would resonate at inaudible frequencies.
