Micro-image

 

This was a bit of a surprise - a first attempt to take a pic with my new toy, a USB microscope (prompted by Anne's posts!).  To the naked eye, this is all invisible: it is a business card with black on white text and a pale beige image.  This is what appears at about 1,000 times magnification. You can see the device here.

I always thought beige really looked like this...
Tom Wilson: And you were right, Larry

It is an interesting image, Tom...Ayush could probably tell you a bit about micro dot matrix printing.
Tom Wilson: Yes, I understand how it is - I was just surprised that the black lettering showed up like this smile
Well certainly fun! It is amazing what is found through a microscope! You should see a human iris... it's incredibly beautiful!
Tom Wilson: I must try to take a shot of my own smile
that precisely is the world of printing, Tom. Yellow, Cyan, Magenta and Black coming together to make all kinds of colours and tones. and to think what all can be powered by USB now.
Tom Wilson: Yes, I'm aware of that, Ayush - I was just a little surprised that the black letters showed up like this smile
OMG. And the device is so affordable. How many of us will now want to have it for ourselves, I wonder. smile
Tom Wilson: Yes - not at all expense - Anne has a different model, but equally affordable.

Keep at it Tom, you'll get there..
Tom Wilson: I'll try Chris smile
Looks like you are going to have some fun Tom. Not exactly expensive is it?
Tom Wilson: Very affordable - of course the lens quality is not the highest, but one can still have some fun.

Fantastic Tom, but are you on commission?
Tom Wilson: Not so far - but I'm open to offers smile
They have called it an endoscope. Are you and your wife qualified to perform that procedure on each other? smilesmilesmilesmile

What fun you will have with this top. I am assuming these are the drops of ink we are seeing.
Tom Wilson: They are indeed, Mary - and no relevant qualifications at all, although I suppose I could stick it in my mouth to see what my tongue looks like smile
I can see you'll be having fun with that Tom.
Tom Wilson: Oh yes smile
joli graphisme! amitiés
Tom Wilson: Merci, Jean Pierre
