microscopic noodle bowl.

Posted on Fri, May 30, 2008 at 4:10 PM

Continuing my fascination with all things ramen, I bring to you the news that Japanese scientists have created the world's smallest bowl of ramen, using carbon nanotubes (which are not tasty, as far as I know) â?? it's only visible under a microscope.

"We believe it's the world's smallest ramen bowl, with the smallest portion of noodles inside, though they are not edible," [Professor Masayuki] Nakao said.

The hardest part was to keep the noodles from rising upright from the bowl "like alfalfa sprouts," he said. "The achievement was mostly for fun."
