MicrobeScope: the world's first iPhone microscope
From smartphone to science tool
The new portable microscope has a fixed magnification of 800x and fits like a stand with your iPhone, featuring a fixed-focus lens, and one level of magnification.
Unlike a regular laboratory microscope which uses glass slides, the MicrobeScope has to be placed over the object to be studied, with it using just two AAA batteries to power the LED light source of the microscope.
To examine a subject, for example algae, bacteria or other microbes, the iPhone only needs to be aligned with the eyepiece of the microscope.
With a pledge of $115 you can order a MicrobeScope from Kickstarter now and receive it within the upcoming months.
