"Infinitesimal Machinery" is a 90-minute talk given by Feynman at JPL's von Karman Auditorium in 1983. In 1960 Feynman had given a talk, "There's Plenty of Room at the Bottom," which has become a classic of nanotechnology. (See E & S, 2/60 for the printed version.) This talk he describes as "Plenty of Room Revisited." The historic 1/64"-on-a-side motor, made by William McLellan, is passed around the audience. Archives has a VHS loan copy as of 10-27-92. July 1995: A transcription of this talk is published in Journal of Microelectromechanical Systems 2:4-14 (1993); a copy is in Historical File under RPF, Nanotechnology.
