Is Ken Hayworth building the instruments for uploading brains?

from h+ magazine:

[…] Ken’s original ATLUM machine has already collected over 1,000 sections of embedded mouse cortex, each 30nm thick and 1mm x 5mm in area.

SEM images of these ATLUM-collected sections can attain lateral resolutions of 5nm or better, which is sufficient to image individual synaptic vesicles and to identify and trace all circuit connectivity.
