Match Dwarfs World’s Smallest Electric Motor
Completely dwarfed in comparison with an ordinary kitchen match, a Lilliputian electric motor constructed in Switzerland by Ferdinand Huguenin is said to be the smallest in the world. Rated at five thousandths of a watt and driven by a two-volt battery, the tiny engine employs forty-eight separate parts, including pieces of platinum and two rubies.
