Miniature Gears

Caption:

Micromechanics is one of the emerging technologies supported by NSF. These miniature gears, developed by researchers at AT&T Bell Laboratories, are about the size of a human hair and are driven by air forced through their ports. Many engineers and scientists think this miniature equipment promises to alter radically such areas as manufacturing process and medical practice.
