    The World's Smallest Fountain Pen

    As seen at
    http://news.yahoo.com/s/space/200510...estfountainpen
    a new fountain pen has been developed that can draw lines as narrow as 40 nanometers across. To put that into perspective, a typical red blood cell is about 7,000 nanometers across. The limit of resolution of a light microscope is about 300 nanometers across. The article suggests some uses like "crafting miniscule protein arrays and complex semiconductors".
    One use that immediately comes to my mind is writing licensing agreements on software packages.

    It solves the problem of hiding the cheat notes. The tricky part could be to conceal the scanning electron microscope needed to read them.

    lol, donít worry, our markets will soon have an exact
    replica with a Made In Pakistan label on it

    & donít underestimate those 'burgers' ..., they can simply
    import anything but i donít think so that they will be interested
    in this pen, they would probably import some merc.

    Btw, interesting invention, let see how its
    going to serve us in the near future.
