IMp: The customizable LEGO® Pinned Insect ManipulatorBy Dupont S., Price B., and Blagoderov V.
Thought this might be useful for those trying to photograph their collections and it's fairly ingenious. The authors are based at the Natural History Museum London
We present a pinned insect manipulator (IMp) constructed of LEGO® building bricks with two axes of movement and two axes of rotation. In addition we present three variants of the IMp to emphasise the modular design, which facilitates resizing to meet the full range of pinned insect specimens, is fully customizable, collapsible, affordable and does not require specialist tools or knowledge to assemble.
