Mcavity from #zipit on irc.freenode.net has finally found the cure for strained eyes when you are running a terminal console on your Zipit. You just need to magnify it. After doing some shopping around, he found a site that sells a Gameboy screen magnifier for $0.69.
The magnifier is a flip up - flip down model that you can put up and out of the way when you are not using it. This morning he shared some pictures of the attachment in action.
And here it is in "flipped up mode".
Now, with magnified eyes!
Another before and after ...
Mcavity says that this works pretty well, especially for having spent less than a buck on the idea. I don't know that he was thinking large enough though. When he shared his ideas about getting one of these, I kind of had a scene from the movie Brazil in my head.
"Has anyone seen Sam Lowry?"
