The world’s smallest person shape, by artist Jonty Hurwitz, is only as tall as a sheet of document is thick--just 100 microns. To "carve" it, he had nonscientist Stefan Hengsbach direct long-wavelength light from side to side a microscope onto a photosensitive polymer. This shaped a solitary voxel, or 3D pixel, at the focal end. Following a digital replica, Hengsbach repeated the procedure to build the form one voxel at a time. The overexcited accurate technique also has practical application in drug. For example, researchers can produce minuscule scaffold for growing kidney tissue in a patient’s corpse, eliminate the require for an organ remove.
