Microscopy UK presents:

THE INSTITUTE FOR THE PROMOTION OF THE LESS THAN ONE MILLIMETRE

Microscopic water organisms in 3D!

The pictures are presented as red and blue anaglyphs so you need red and blue glasses to see the 3D effect.

Between a colony and a multicellular organism: Volvox.
The major goal of the Institute for the promotion of the less than one millimetre is to bring organisms normally neglected because of their invisibility under the attention of a wide audience. No longer will amazing creatures like 'Noctiluca scintillans ' or 'Volvox aureus ' be regarded as insignificant! Let the unicellulars rule the web!

The Institute asked the renowned 'Foundation for Remarkable Photography' to develop techniques to present the microscopic world in three dimensions on the computer screen. The foundations photographic researcher Wim van Egmond took upon himself the task to make several portraits of the most wonderfull microscopic water organisms.

Brought to you in full 3D are:

Volvox

Bell animalcules

Noctiluca

 Starfish larva

Diatoms

Hydra

Bryozoans

Desmids

Spirogyra

Stentor
