Technology is evolving so fast. These days, when we say “future,” we literally mean tomorrow. Leading specialty glass and ceramics manufacturer, Corning Incorporated, shares their vision of tomorrow in this video with almost 9 million views after just a month on YouTube. It’s refreshing to see how a company not built on the cloud sees how their products will be used by consumers and businesses of this and the next generation.

Aardman, a 4-time Oscar winning animation studio in the UK, assembled a small team of talented story-tellers, animators and engineers to celebrate an exciting new technology intended to help diagnose diseases like malaria, from blood samples in remote villages all over the world. The Nokia N8 mobile phone and a CellScope attachment was used to shoot a charming, teeny-tiny film called “Dot.”

Meet Tiny Dot, the 9-millimeter character who goes on a magical adventure in the film. Because the creators could not manipulate the character’s body parts due to its miniscule size, they had to create 17 molds of the same character in different positions. A lot of high detail work and long hours were spent creating this film. They averaged 4 seconds of completed animation work per day. The storyline is simple but compelling. The result: a film with over 2 million views on YouTube after only six months.

As they say in the film, oftentimes, it’s not the technology. It’s what you do with it. Watch as the Aardman team shares the story behind the making of “Dot.”

Imagine this. A 9-millimeter character 1/5 the size of your pinky being filmed in an animation studio in Bristol, UK. Pretty amazing, right? But wait. There’s more to the story than just its cool factor.

In 2010, Nokia teamed up with Professor Fletcher who built CellScope, a microscopic attachment to the Nokia NS 12-megapixel smart phone. The idea behind combining these two technologies is to capture images of blood samples in far-flung places that cannot easily be reached by laboratory technicians. They had a noble mission and wanted to celebrate the possibilities of this new technology. They decided to pose a challenge to a well-known animation studio in England.

The goal: To produce the world’s smallest film. The challengers: Aardman film and television animation studios in Bristol, UK.
The result: Tiny Dot and her magical world unfolding before your eyes through this charming, teeny-tiny film called “Dot.”  Watch and enjoy!
