Smallest Ramen Bowl in the World

Illustration for article titled Smallest Ramen Bowl in the World

According to legend, University of Tokyo professor Masayuki Nakao was bitten by a radioactive ramen bowl when he was a kid, which gave him the ability to spit 1-micron-wide bowls made out of silicon—full of dozens of 20-nanometer-think carbon noodles floating in an ethanol soup—at supersonic speeds. Or maybe he did this one with a metal particle beam to demo a new circuit manufacturig technology using carbon nanotubes. Whatever it is, they are low on sodium: two molecules per serving.
