Molecular point by Imajilon on Flickr.A través de Flickr: This image looks like some sort of molecular construct, perhaps for a nanoscopic application like atomic force microscopy or a nano-dot that has self-assembled. Made using GroBoto. GroBoto is a pretty fascinating program for creating all kinds of 3-D imagery based on repeating geometric constructs. This is a very simple example- the range of complexity and variation available in the program seems nearly limitless.
