If you own a smartphone and have an interest in looking at bugs and things at a microscopic level a new smartphone microscope that comprises of just a small lense may be of interest.
The Dotlens Smartphone Microscope has been designed by Jenn Jeang based in Huston Texas and transforms your smartphone camera into a microscope using a sense that has been created using an inkjet printer.
The Dotlens microscope is currently over on Kickstarter website looking to raise $3,000 to go into production and is available to pledge for just $10 for two lenses. Jeang explains :
“See things down to 1/10th the width of your hair with our 15x lens. To get started, simply put dotlens in front of your smartphone camera. No glue, no attachments, no hassles. Dotlens:
• Is fully inkjet printed.
• Works by attaching to the smartphone camera lens directly, no barrels, clips, attachments, just an elegantly designed lens.
• Has an identical optical power as professional microscope lenses that cost ten to a hundred times more.
• Is easy to remove without residue.
• Is compatible with almost all smartphones and tablets.
• Use, and re-use, the adhesive does not weaken with time!
