Tiny Turbine

Slashdot linked up the announcement of a (potentially) working turbine that's only 1 mm in size. They haven't quite built it yet, but it sounds like they're damned close. Such an engine can be used to power a variety of different devices much more efficiently than current battery technologies. If it pans out, these turbines will most likely represent a technological "discontinuity" between this century and the previous one.
