"Scientists have shown off what can be described as the world's smallest electric car -- made of a single, carefully designed molecule. The molecule has four branches that act as wheels, rotating when a tiny metal tip applied a small current to them. With 10 electric bursts, the car was made to move six billionths of a metre."
