Info

Ralph Hollis of IBM at Yorktown Heights, N.Y. demonstrates a tele-nanorobotic manipulation system with atomic scale force feedback. A scanning tunneling microscope that is probing the surface of gold is linked to a force-feedback "magic wrist" which moves as the microscope probe maps out the atomic structure, enabling the user to "feel" the atoms. In the background is a color image of the gold's atomic surface structure. The other two researchers who worked on the system are (Tim).S. Salcudean, and David W. Abraham. Model Released
