Yes, they're for a real project. But, are they legible?

Envelope - Location - Info - Chat - User - Window - City - Telephone - Link - Group.
Did I win a cookie?
@Joe Prince WOW. Great job. Here's a cookie!
Just imagining trying to use these on a retina display, hah.
Pritty bitty things indeed
Bigger question is, are they clickable? Teeeensy. But rad.
itty bitty... nanocons!
Contextual Tylenol. Little, white different.
They're all legible to a 26 year old set of eyeballs, but definitely a bit of a strain.
I can read them, but I just can't see any reason for these to be this small. It requires quite a bit of effort for me to realize what they are and that kind of defeats the purpose of icons.
In terms on UX it is hard to use, and forget it if they're used on a mobile device, it would be impossible to click on the one you want. , I also second @Casey Britt 's comment. Why make something thats supposed to be time saving so hard to see?
@Casey Britt context, context, context. I believe they'll actually be usable in context.
If they have anything to do with this - http://dribbble.com/shots/469298-Contacts-App - then I LUVZ DEM. If not, then I STEEL LUVZ DEM
Nice work, the only one that throws me for a loop is the "City" one between Window and Phone. I know it will make since in the end.
Dunno man, they seem a little too big to me.
Why are they so big?
- Magnify glass
- Man Sitting Upside Down
- Another Basketball
- Sweeper Thing
- Window To The World
- Dominos (EASY)
- Sideways Mustache
- Piano Keys
4th from the right looked like "Servers" to me.
They are too small. If I'm more than 30cm away from the screen and having glasses, I have problem reading them.
Legible for an adult with 20/20 vision, but the precision required not to click the wrong button would drive me insane. That aside, I'm amazed that you managed to cram them inside those containers and yet make sense of them.
The "link" and "group" ones are the most difficult to decode. But they're all legible, specially if you are computer literate. :)
Will you provide tooltips for these? And shortcuts?
BTW, for me they represent: mail, location, info/help, chat, user, window, home/directory, phone, link, group
If they make sense in context, where can we see that context? :D
keyboard shortcuts: ← previous shot → next shot L or F like
