Not just a plaything, anymore

Abstract:
Blowing bubbles and watching them drift away in a breeze is a wonderful way to waste an afternoon with a child, but bubbles can be more than mere playthings. Push the pressure behind them up by hundreds and scale down their size by a factor of nearly a billion, and you have the core of a new technology that works at some of the highest precisions available.
