Researchers used a scanning tunnelling microscope to move thousands of carbon monoxide molecules to make an animated short film depicting a stick boy playing with his pet atom.
In the one-minute video, individual molecules are repeatedly rearranged to show a boy dancing, throwing a ball and bouncing on a trampoline.
The film, called A Boy and His Atom, is so small it can be seen only when magnified 100 million times.
