Here in Hawaii, food is a pretty big deal and ramen is one of the many popular dishes. In Japan, ramen is also a pretty big deal – except in this particular case.

Scientists from the University of Tokyo in Japan have invented a microscopic bowl of ramen. The bowl measures 1/12,500th of an inch in length and 1.25 millionth of an inch in thickness. Good luck trying to slurp those noodles!

The invention, which used strong-as-steel carbon nanotubes for the bowl, is all part of a contribution to the world of nanotechnology. And just in case you are on a diet and getting some ideas, stop right there, the noodles are not edible.
