The electron microscope allows us to see things unimaginably tiny. What if we could take the microscopic and make it macroscopic? Imagine the potential for medical research, for battleships with the armor of beetles, for innovations of all kinds.
Imagine the dangers. Imagine a microbe the size of a pet. Unpredictable, not killable by any normal means. Feeding. Reproducing.
Just sit perfectly still, don't move your hands."
