The most annoying thing about going to the beach is when sand mercilessly sticks to everything, but these magnified grains of sand will definitely change that.

Dr. Gary Greenberg presents these images of grains of sand magnified to 250 times its actual size. You would never guess that sand looks as beautiful as this. Resembling things like sea shells and fossils, these magnified grains of sand are a beautiful sight to be seen.

The next time sand sticks to you, you may just want to look at it a bit more closely before wiping it off.

Implications - With so many new technologies coming out each day, modern consumers are only looking for the ones most relevant to their lives.
