Dot: The World's Smallest Cartoon... Simply Amazing!
Technology's something! Seeing its works and how it makes life easier, more consumed, extra luxurious and at the same time making things that were almost impossible to happen to actually happen gives pleasure to the mind. I was actually so intrigued by this thing that at this level I already know what will be my next post! The creation of this very ambitious (and yet successful) project on having a 9millimeter character make people look at her repeatedly struggling in her microscopic life. Lovely. Tomorrow I will also share how it was created. For sure, it was NOT easy.
It's been quite sometime and now that I am back, and hopefully on a regular basis, I would like to share with you, my fellow bloggers and web surfers, the smallest cartoon ever! I was amazed the first time I saw and after realizing how it was and what size it has. At first I thought it was an eye test but then I saw that it's a cartoon! It was so cool! Talented animator! Or whatever you call the person who did it. Kudos!
Now, enjoy watching! It's so clear, great magnification!
I was intrigued by this amazing magnified cartoon that I allowed my curiosity to take over me. I searched about it and I found not so many article so far. One good info though was at NJuice telling that:
Professor Fletcher's invention of the CellScope, which is a Nokia device with a microscope attachment, was the inspiration for a teeny-tiny film created by Sumo Science at Aardman. It stars a 9mm girl called Dot as she struggles through a microscopic world. All the minuscule detail was shot using CellScope technology and a Nokia N8, with its 12 megapixel camera and Carl Zeiss optics.
