Pringles can -> Macro lens??

If you ever find yourself living in a post-apocalypic, Mad Max-style hellscape *and* needing a new macro lens–or if you just like to tinker–know that evidently a Dremel, a can of Pringles, and some elbow grease are all that stand between you and that sweet new glass. No word, however, on the efficacy of Jalapeño vs. Spicy Cajun flavor… (Going to these lengths somehow reminds me of Jack Handey’s observation, “Most people don’t realize that large pieces of coral, which have been painted brown and attached to the skull by common wood screws, can make a child look like a deer.”) [via Tobias Hoellrich]

  1. Thanks for the link, Joe. You’re right, this is eye-popping work. I know that Todor and Jeff, whose image science work I mentioned a couple of posts back, have been very intrigued by work on plenoptic cameras. (And props on your beautiful site as well. Note to self: must… learn… to take… better photos.)
