A new concept which has been designed to transform your smartphone in to a microscope viewer, has just started its journey from concept to manufacture over on the Kickstarter website.
Once your smartphone is attached to the SkyLight adapter, you can then use your smartphones camera and video recorder to take records of specimens, and easily distribute them either via email or social networks. Watch the video after the jump to see it in action.
The SkyLight concept adapter has been created by Andy Miller an engineer and designer from Oakland. Miller explains:
“The SkyLight is the first of its kind, as there is no other available device that attaches any smartphone to any microscope. The SkyLight’s universal compatibility allows previously owned technology (microscopes) to be upgraded to the digital age with the use of a widely available technology (smartphones) – good for global health, science classes, and anyone else!”
If you think you could benefit from using a SkyLight device jump over to the Kickstarter website to make your pledge and help the SkyLight become a reality.Filed Under: Concepts & Design, Design News
