Those of you who would like to explore the nano-world normally hidden from view, may be interested in a new smartphone microscope designed by a team based in China, that is equipped with dedicated illumination, micro ruler and innovative nano suction mounting pad, allowing it to be securely fastened to your smartphone and easily released when needed. The iMicroscope has been designed to be compatible with most smartphones and offers 30-300x magnification and comes complete with its own dedicated companion application, and the ability to snap photographs of what you are viewing thanks to the triple illumination system.
iMicroscope has this week launched via Kickstarter to raise the required funds the development team need to take the microscope into production. Watch the demonstration video below to learn more about iMicroscope, which is available to back via Kickstarter with super early bird pledges starting from just £70. If all goes well and the Kickstarter campaign is successful the smartphone microscope is expected to start shipping during April 2018.
The creators of the iMicroscope already have already developed a number of smartphone microscope products which are currently available to purchase and include a microRuler, iMicroscope R and iAdatper, all of which have been previously successfully funded via the Kickstarter crowdfunding website. The coated aspherical glass lens of the iMicroscope is protected in a CNC cut aluminium alloy case, to provide a distortion free image, say its developers. iMicroscope also includes a unique programmed illumination control system to provide the perfect lighting to capture photographs of your specimens as you view.
