This Stuff Looks Like Something Out Of A Nightmare, But Most Of It Is In Your House Right Now

It’s amazing to see what happens when you take seemingly normal things from the world around you and stick them under a high-powered microscope. Suddenly, that world of things you take for granted seems alien to you, maybe even a little creepy. Have a look at these everyday things, seen from a whole new perspective.

Banana cross section.

The groove of a vinyl record.


Red blood cells.

Dental floss (slightly used, ew).

The filament inside a lightbulb.

Toothbrush bristles.

Toilet paper... doesn’t look so squeezably soft anymore.

A common housefly’s foot.

Medical sutures.

Human hair with split end. This is a great ad for conditioner.


A spider’s skin.

Snowflakes, each one unique.

Here’s what salt and pepper look like up close.

Salt looks like Mayan pyramids.

Lice. Ew.

The edge of a postage stamp.


Pencil graphite.

Orange juice. That’s just beautiful.

Needle and thread.

Boulders (granules) of instant coffee.

This is what a human sweat gland looks like.


Human eyelashes.

A guitar string. My son’s going to love this one.

A gecko’s foot.

Football jersey.


Dust... looks pretty up close, the bane of my existence in real life.



A blood clot.

It’s especially trippy to think that so many of these things are around us right now. You probably flossed this morning, had some orange juice, and brushed off the dust from your favorite football jersey now that it’s football time again. Just think of what each of those things looks like up close. What a cool world we live in!
