The world’s smallest stop-motion animation

Filmed using life-saving technology, it stars “Dot, a girl who just 9 millimeters tall.” And was created using life-saving technology.

Tracy Staedter of Discovery News explains:

The animation was filmed using a Nokia N8 smart phone equipped with a CellScope, a diagnostic-quality microscope that was invented by Daniel Fletcher at the University of California, Berkeley. The CellScope allows a doctor working anywhere there is a phone service to capture and transmit images of blood samples anywhere in the world. The technology could help diagnose disease in developing countries where medical doctors and labs are few and far between.
