Robot-Built Ultra-Tiny Houses – Femto-ST Institute Researchers Created the World’s Smallest House (TrendHunter.com)

The world’s smallest house stands 0.015 millimeters high, takes up 0.02 millimeters by 0.01 millimeters of space and has walls that are “made of an ultra-thin silica membrane that is just 0.0012 millimeters thick.” The incredible project was kickstarted by researchers from the Femto-ST Institute in Besançon, France.

The micro-house was made possible with the help of innovative technology and nano-robots. The assembly of the world’s smallest house called for the use of a special technique that featured a “tiny robot, working in a vacuum chamber.” An ion beam strategically cut the proportions of the house, which has a standard gabled roof structure, and the membrane was able to self-fold into the desired shape. Thereafter, a less-intense beam was used to weld the parts together.
