Originally built for Brick Madness as a quick build, I recently went back and added steering. Splitting both the front and rear axles made the steering buttery smooth.

On this exciting edition of From The Archives: A 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.

I built this as a graduation gift for my friend who just received his MFA from San Francisco State University.
I also assisted him in creating the video that he used as part of his thesis exhibit. This teleprompter is patterned after the setup we used to allow him to speak directly to a morph he made of Brad Pitt and himself. It was definitely a fun and interesting project.
The photo was custom printed on a 2x4 white tile by Print-A-Brick. For more info contact Dan Kees: firstname.lastname@example.org
