Ant holding a micromechanical gear, SEM | ZEISS Microscopy
Coloured scanning electron micrograph (SEM) of an ant with a gear from a micromotor on its leg. Microgears are made by shining a computer-guided laser onto a chemical film. The laser solidifies the film that it moves over, leaving the gears when the liquid film is washed away.
