    It would be great to see this in action, I have built something similar for my psp but I never found it very useful because the backlight is not very bright. how well does this work with the ipod? great instructable, prob the first one i have seen in a long time. oh and you can expect a comment from GorillazMiko shortly LMAO.

    A very nicely put together instructable. some later modifications which could be made are the inclusion of angled mirrors to increase the focal length, and the magnification. I love the use of the box as a resonator a nicely done instructable
