This device would consist of a magnification display, a pair of waldos connected to tiny robot hands, and a bit of clay. It would allow the user to make sculptures on a very small scale.

       //bit of clay// Might need special clay: would the ordinary kind have the right malleability at that scale? I speculate that's why tiny sculpture (without waldos) is usually done with hard substances and sharp implements <link>.

       What's a waldo?

       No no, it's 'where's waldo'.

       Waldo is actually the Dread Pirate Roberts.

       That name should be Williard Wigan.... won't let me edit it for some reason?

       Might you be able to teach the tiny robot hands to do other tasks as well, like threading needles and feeding tiny dogs little rations of peanut butter? You could then watch via the magnification display, with great relish. Here's a tiny little bun [+].

       // great relish //   

       Will that be a normal-sized jar of relish, or a little tiny one ?

       I wondered if someone would pick up on that...
