Housefly Gets Laser Cut Glasses

The Grave Digger


The above image was an entry into a science photography competition: a a fly sporting a set of "designer" lenses crafted and set in place with a cutting-edge laser technique. The glasses fit snuggly on the fly's 0.08-inch-wide (2-millimeter-wide) head.
Manufacturing firm Micreon GmbH submitted the insect's picture for the Bilder der Forschung (Photos of Science) 2005 competition. Selected images were on display last week in a Munich shopping center.

[...]

Micreon, based in Hannover, Germany created the fly's eyewear using ultrafast laser micro-machining. The firm notes on its Web site that the process can create objects with high precision at scales of less than a thousandth of a millimeter.

Link. Listen, yuppies can put sweaters on their dogs, Paris Hilton can put diamonds on Tinkerbell, but this is going too far. Or is it?
