Big Blue's IBM Research group will announce the new transistor at the International Electron Devices Meeting (IEDM) in San Francisco this week. The length of the transistor's gate--a tiny pathway for electricity--is only 6 nanometers, or 1,000 times smaller than the width of a human hair.
Isn't it amazing we can make stuff that small?! This is great news. :D

That is really awesome, just wait until we find practical everyday uses for nanotechnology.....oh those new stain resistant jeans such as the dockers use nanotechnology.
