Molecular bearing, computer model. This bearing design is an example of nanotechnology. Each sphere represents an individual atom and is colour-coded: carbon (yellow), hydrogen (light green), silicon (green) and sulphur (orange) . It is based on fullerenes, forms of carbon where atoms are bonded to make balls or tubes. Nanotechnology involves the construction of devices at the molecular level.
