Pretty cool concept. This is sparking some ideas for me…

Pretty clever. Might have to try it out on the office projector sometime.
“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.” –Brick Laboratory
Pretty bad ass. Wonder if people will start making telescopes out of them as well.
Pretty cool hack by one of my buddies. He was able to create a standing desk for $22. Learn how you can do it yourself here with some Ikea parts. Hat tip: Adam
