Fun stuff seems to have started coming out of Siggraph.


Technically speaking what Gigamacro does is called robotic scanning, taking a microscope and automating its image capture process. The physical mechanism, moving the camera around, focusing it, and panning it is the easy part, the hard bits are reassembling the results into a coherent picture.
