The essence of art and science

Whether you need to draw something, do complicated calculations or even study some microscopic structure, Isaac Snyder has you covered. Built for a LUG display in the Strong Museum of Play in Rochester, his assortment of items connected to art, technology, science and maths includes a compass, a calculator, some pens and more. My favourite is the calculator, particularly the use of a dark nougat 1×2 tile as the “=” button. Most people would use a brighter colour in its place, although this one does have a lovely retro aesthetic to it. I do wish though, that the whole collection was built to 1:1 scale, as the smaller microscope, while looking good and accurate, simply does not fit.
