    Intrigued enough to look into the technique, I just found that confocal imaging was invented by Marvin Minsky!

    Is there any award out there specifically recognizing the kinds of genius who contribute to such wide ranging disciplines?

    @boingboing-f204c21f5f6da3c74892735f505e7858:disqus , nope. Go look it up.
    @ Jim Saul, the Nobel prize for physics is often to given to inventors or discoverers of founding principles or inventions which contribute to this type of instrumentation.

      That makes sense, since they are giving the world tools with which to make so many other discoveries.  What I meant specifically in this case was that I was surprised to see Minsky’s name, since I only knew of his groundbreaking work in AI and cognitive theory.

    Anyone with a healthy reef aquarium has tons of these little guys crawling around. Usually they’re white.
