Challenge accepted, and…Boom. :sunglasses:

The rice grains do not change color when they are engraved, so you need a special backlight and zoom lens for the camera to photograph it.

(Otherwise it just looks like rough rice.)

This is the best I can get. We need a pro here.

Congratulations @dan, @tony, @mark and all of the Glowforge crew…my socks have been blown OFF! :smile: :hedgie::hedgie::hedgie::pancake::glowforge:

(It will do text even smaller than that, but I can’t photograph it and need to put it under a little microscope thing to see it.)

edit: Okay, figured a better way of taking the shot, through a microscope:

That’s amazing. Would be great to see a good macro lens on that.


#3

Well, it looks like you won this one :sunglasses:


#4

It’s a freebie giveaway you just snap over the iphone lens.

(Not perfect, but at least you can see the text.)

I am absolutely floored! :grin:


#5

Nicely done! I wanted to try this… but didn’t think it would actually work.


#6

They certainly have improved registration since I visited them at maker faire. Wow.


#7

Here are some gears I cut out with a mite for comparison.

JK! Congratulations on this @Jules , I think we can declare you the winner.


#8

I’d be surprised if @henryhbk didn’t have some sort of macro-capable microscope available in his labs somewhere. Maybe he could follow up if he has time?


#9

No…I believe the dust mite takes it! ROFL! :smile:


#10

Paint the top of a pin head and etch away the paint, then I’ll be impressed. Just kidding! Great job!


#11

Absolutely! I lack photography equipment that will go that small. :smile:


#12

Sure would make a great promotional material to show a Glowforge logo engraved in a painted pin head.


#13

Not only hilarious, but outstanding work Jules.
You are my hero.


#14

That is just amazing @Jules !

"Who ate my rice…?
“Was your name on it?”
"Actually…:grin: "

Rice? Pffffft. Try a poppy seed:

But seriously, a crowning achievement!

Send me some rice and I’ll take some photos. :wink:

I’ll be able to engrave my own rice some day…


#18

Hmmmn! Poppy seed…

:grin:


#19

And challenge accepted… Off to buy a bagel. Even if you fail, at least you have a toasted bagel.

Ok, that is IMPRESSIVE, but since I have yet to receive my GlowForge and can’t do this myself, how about the ULTIMATE challenge.

Laser the GF symbol on a single Hydrogen Atom!

Too bad hydrogen atoms are blue, makes it hard to see the GF symbol! :-)))
