Mr. Playwood | Microscope | Mechanical Wooden Model
This device assembled by Mr. Playwood when he was ten years old was bought by the peasants’ tribe. They used the Microscope to study pollen, seeds and minute pests.
Thanks to the Microscope they identified and successfully eliminated microscopic sponger beetles responsible for ruining more than a handful of fruit farms set up on the branches of the Great Tree.
To assemble the microscope Mr. Playwood used, alongside durable tree bark, solid transparent resin and meteorite chips stuck in the branches.
The Microscope is one of Mr. Playwood’s most complex inventions: it took him a whooping three months to develop the device.
Instead of magnifying small items the first version of the Microscope literally reduced them to ashes. This model is now used by Mr. Playwood as a burner.
Early on, Mr. Playwood was so shocked by things seen in the Microscope, he lost all appetite for a week. Infusoria he detected seemed like fairly ghastly creatures to him. Yet when he got to know them better, he took a liking to them, gave them names and even began inviting them to parties.
Mr. Playwood, however, became particularly attached to one specific infusorium. He called her Cornelia and dedicated a poem to her – the text, unfortunately, now lost to the ages.
The estimated value of this gadget equals the value of ten Elephant or three Shotguns
