Let's face it - the only reason anyone ever reads Scientific American is to see how "shiny" the future is going to be.

Nano Light Bulbs for Your Shirt

From the article:
According to the research article published in “Nano Letters”, the scientists were able to create one of the smallest manmade source of light that world has ever seen. The light-emitting spots on the fibers measure less than 250 nm in diameter which makes this light source smaller than the wavelength of light that they emit - 600nm.

How the heck do they make things that small?

How the heck do they make things that small emit light with wavelengths bigger than they are? And why aren't they using these same construction techniques to make visible light frequency metamaterials already?
