Ion Torrent PII Chip

Today’s eye-candy is a photograph. Well, actually, it’s five photographs combined into a focus stack. This is one of the chips that goes into the S5 and S5XL seen earlier. (It can decode your DNA, dude.) For this shot, the clear plastic flowcell has been removed exposing the extremely high-resolution sensor below.

I shot this at my desk on a cloudy day with my X100T mounted upside-down on this super high tech rig. A combination of natural and incandescent light from a desk lamp helped create the colorful iridescence on the chip surface.

  1. Would love to see a wallpaper similar to the “The Chip Is the Machine” one. Maybe some S5 and S5XL ones too.
