Cheap A** Microscope Incubator

Joseph Elsbernd, a Graduate student out of UC Davis Med Center, has built a rather ingenious tool for keeping his cultures warm while on the microscope. Using some pvc, plastic sheeting, a bit of duck tape and a hair dryer he built a fully encompassing incubator for his microscope.

I especially like the picture below showing how his first version was literally just a cardboard box.
