New playable 'nanoguitar' promises circuit applications

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.
