If your Blu-ray player has gone from being the centerpiece of your home theater to a dust-collecting ornament, here’s a project for you.

Doctor Volt recently published a post explaining how to transform a Samsung BD-J5900 Blu-ray player into a laser scanning microscope.

One of the main advantages of a laser scanning microscope over optical microscopes is that the former achieves a maximum magnification of 1,500 times. Doctor Volt states that he is not certain about the magnification of the DIY microscope, but he mentions that it “can show structures of around 5 micrometers.”

If you’re interested in building your own laser microscope using a Blu-ray player, you can follow the instructions provided by Doctor Volt in his post.

Let me know if there’s anything else I can assist you with!
