retina pixels


Today’s banner: high-resolution “Retina display” pixels. We found a stereo microscope at the local university surplus store, which is really just a toy store for grownups.

There was an immediate and intense compulsion to put something, anything at all, under the scope. Sadly, none of our cats would fit, and anyway, the illuminator wasn’t working, so we wouldn’t have seen anything.

More casting about and — Voilà! A self-illuminating iPhone 4 with tiny pixels to look at!

We discovered that staring at pixels closeup can make your brain hurt.
