We’ve featured many weird and wonderful Lego creations here on Geek Gadgets over the years but now Lego master builder Carl Merriman has created a fully functional Lego microscope.
Carl has been building with Lego for over 27 years and his latest creation was inspired by the Lego X-Pod sets, which have now unfortunately been discontinued.
Carl Merriman explains a little more about his new Lego microscope creation :
“While trying to find a use for the pod itself, I realized that it was very close to a deep petri dish. I used a planetary gear system to allow both coarse and fine adjustment of the objective “lens”. A little more tinkering and I connected the focus to a magnifying glass and fiber optic light in the eyepiece, so adjusting the focus knobs would actually bring the writing on a LEGO stud in and out of focus.”
For more information on the new Lego microscope jump over to the Carl Merriman website for details.
