Lego Microscope

This build was originally inspired by the Lego X-Pod sets. 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.

But how are they supposed to turn the knobs with those useless U-shaped hands?!?

People who don’t approve of homosexuality will never listen to our voices. I’ve given up trying to plead my case to them long ago. To them it’s only sex and selfish lust and nothing more. They don’t care that women’s smiles make me light up inside and I want to hold their hands and give them flowers. They don’t care that I am simply interested in everything that women are. They’ve never had to care and most never will have to in their lives because they are not gay.
