Look at the scale of those things! This might be larger-scale than nanotech, but it's just as intriguing, and applicable to making things like operating scale-sized switch motors and semaphore actuators in N scale, and power systems for lots of other animations too. Kermit Paul, for one, would probably go nuts if he could get his hands on a fab plant like these guys have.
