… a mite doesn't fit through the door!

"A nanorobotics team has assembled a new microrobotics system that pushes forward the frontiers of optical nanotechnologies. Combining several existing technologies, the newly developed nanofactory builds microstructures in a large vacuum chamber and fixes components onto optical fiber tips with nanometer accuracy. The microhouse construction demonstrates how researchers can advance optical sensing technologies when they manipulate ion guns, electron beams and finely controlled robotic piloting…."

and someone is going to say that 6nm is the new gaming standard for really big battles…but it does have all of the sci fi elements (ion guns, robotic piloting, electron beams)

It doesn't look bad, but I'm still not going under 2mm scale.

I was going to go 6nm but then my favorite miniatures company came out with a line of 7nm minis, so I went with those instead. Microscopic scale creep! :)
