Smallest Snowman Ever is a Fifth of the Width of a Hair
The geeks in question are actually engineers at the National Physical Laboratory.
They have built the worldâ€™s smallest snowman – ok, it’s not actually made out of snow but it is tiny.
It was made by David Cox out of two tiny beads that have been welded together with platinum.
It’s brilliant – it even has eyes, a nose and a smile which were carved from a focused ion beam, and a tiny piece of platinum was used for the snowmanâ€™s nose.
