Hello BoingBoing Readers!

I just thought I'd submit my blog to BoingBoing on a whim. I never really though I'd be honored with a link. Welcome to my page. I hope you like the images I'm taking. Please feel free to make any comments and/or suggestions and come back Monday for more pictures!

Update: Whoops, Emmanuel notified me that I did not have anonymous comments turned on. Sorry about that folks. They're on now.

Nice work! Did the drivers for the microscope work fine with Windows XP ? I don't seem to be able to get my intel microscope working, I just get a black screen ??? Appreciate any help.

Hi, Adam. Yes I got it to work with XP, but there is an error message when I start it up, some spinning logo video that doesn't work. Also, the software is horribly annoying. Lots of stupid sound effects you can't get rid of, so I usually end up using the third party software on my iBook. If only a third party would write similar software for my desktop XP machine... but hey, for a $50 microscope, I can't really complain much.

fantastic stuff - would love to see the most recent ones as oil paintings... what was that easy photoshop adjustment you mentioned?

Hi Daniel

These photos are just great. I have been thinking of getting this microscope for my granddaughter (age 7) and keeping it at my home ( for what!) seems great, but is it? Like, it's hard to believe.

Cool idea! How bout some close up pics of fingernails- you'll see all sorts of grubby stuff in there. Makes you never want to put your fingers near your mouth ever again....

what an awesome idea! please don't stop!

how about some chips (like cheetos or lays, and such), and then something green (healthy) like a tomato seed/juice, lettuce, to see what goes in :-)

orange juice versus wine? would liquids photograph at all?

I totally have that same microscope - my husband bought it for me when I was (unsuccessfully, as it turned out) trying to hatch dwarf frog eggs. It's great! Clearly I have to bust that thing out again and go to work...

I've had a toy microscope when i was a kid too, but i've never been able to make it work.
This one is great ! It looks like webcam quality pics but for that price it's good.

Just an idea for a pic ! I'd like to see how a toothbrush look like at 200x (unused and used).

Wonderful idea, keep it up! I am, however, a little perturbed by the fact that you live in L.A. and have cleaner looking boogers than I do.

I saw one of those microscopes at a local Fry's Electronics, and always wondered how well they're getting some terrific images out of it, thanks for posting them!

I got an Intel Play at a thrift store for $3.50 and bought it gambling that
a) it worked
b) that I could find downloadable drivers for it

Correct on both counts. I'm using it on OS X Macs. Very cool toy (and an incredible amount of technology for $3.50)
: )

You have inspired me to hook it up and start saving images. Thanks!

Those with problems, check: QX3 Top Technical Issues. OS X users might like miXscope (though I think the 1.3 version I have was free).

Gorgeous stuff. I love the abstract, extreme close-ups, especially of the prescription drugs. Keep it coming.
