Dot: Guinness World Record for smallest stop-motion animation (Video)
This tiny, pristine stop animation reimagines a world where bumblebees offer unsafe passage. It's the creation of Sumo Science and Aardman Animations, and it's filmed on a Nokia camera with a CellScope attachment. The film about a thumbnail-size heroine won the Guinness World Record for smallest stop-motion animation
The CellScope does not just make cool videos; it also happens to be a life-saving technology. The microscopic device, invented by Daniel Fletcher, a University of California at Berkeley bioengineering professor, attaches to a Nokia handset and aids in diagnosing fatal diseases in remote areas in India and Uganda. It has already proved helpful in detecting malaria.
