You sure must have got your name inked on a grain of rice at a tourist spot. But did you see anybody writing your name on a strand of hair?


Forget name, a team of artists and scientists has etched the world's smallest comic strip on a single human hair.

Titled "Juana Knits The Planet," the strip was created by German artist Claudia Puhlfurst then carved into the hair using a process called focused ion beam (FIB) etching.

This is part of the promotion of the upcoming Exceptional Hardware Software Meeting (EHSM) in Hamburg, Germany.

"A very sharp and high-speed jet of matter is produced and directed towards the hair to etch it - similar to a fine laser beam," according to the project's YouTube page.

Juanita, a ten micron-tall girl-turned-robot, is the star of "Juanita Knits the Planet," the world's smallest comic strip.

Each of the strip's 12 frames measure in at around 25 microns.

A micron is one millionth of a metre. A typical human hair is anywhere from 20 to 200 microns in width, Discovery News reported.
