    According to this CNN.com article
    it seems that a reckless magnifier has found (among other things) an image of Dilbert in a chip:

    Here is his site. He does have hundreds of chip images. Pity he doesn't mention which chips he found them on. :(

    I once took some pictures of sausage (that autofluoresces) on the microscope.

    A very nice link Stelliform, thank you. A view of art through science. I like the one of Cholesterol, impressionistic.

    I suppose that designing chips gets to be a boring work...

    I always "sign" my circuit boards with a : :)
    I did the same to an analog chip I designed many years ago. It actually was useful, a batch of chips failed. Examining under a electron microscope, we could see the the final metal wasn't completely etched. The Happy face was an enclosed item, so it limited the etchants actions.
    So it's not simply "art" it actually has a valid reason for being there !
