The 9-mm-tall Dot fights her way through her tiny, tiny world.

Shot with a CellScope - a diagnostic-quality microscope that works with a cell phone camera. The making of Dot. The CellScope is intended as a diagnostic tool for field and home.

I should say, this is little video is really an ad for the Nokia N8 phone the CellScope was hooked up to. I love the weave textures. And the colored pencil shaving waves. And all the other tiny, tiny things! I think it is quite wonderful.

Yeah, it's an ad, but it's still one awesomely kyoot animation.

Cute, but I totally thought that said "the 9-mm-tall dog," and I was expecting to see the world's most magnificent teacup chihuahua or something. Now I'm sad.

Now I understand why miniature dogs always look so quivery-nervy. It's hard being tiny.

This is lovely. Like Henry Selick meets Little Big Planet meets the Museum of Jurassic Technology.

No no no, it's a microscope attached to a Nokia Device. At least according to the video description.

Clever, and well done. But, I gotta tell ya, that bee was dead as a door nail. Really.

Very cute.
I wish I had the patience to create a such a fluid stop-motion movie, that's a ton of pictures to take.

The painting bit at 3:10 of the making of just made me understand what people get out of making warhammer models and the like. It was foreign to me before that moment.
