You mentioned using "an $8 USB Microscope". Where in the world did you get a microscope for that low price?


Put some paper under it, you can see just how "messy" the make-up of the fibres is.

cool. this is interesting.

thanks, have any suggestions for what I should put under next?

An elephant.

foam board minus the paper coating or the insulation kind would be cool.

is that the stuff that's in that spongy posterboard?

huh, I could of swore I had some, but I don't. I think my sister used it for a science fair thing, then through it out. sorry

Crack open an old chip to get at the wafer (there's an 'ible on that somewhere) and put the wafer under the scope.

I tried that earlier today, but I couldn't see anything under it... You could faintly see a couple of traces, but the rest just looked like a glob of silver, even under 200x, which is the max on my cheap microscope, oh well
