If you are interested in seeing the smaller side of life i n the hidden world of microbes and how nature has constructed the world around us, you might be interested in a new device called the MicrobeScope.
The MicrobeScope in small enough to fit in your pocket and transforms your iPhone into a microscope, and has been designed by 4D Optical. Watch the video after the jump to learn more about the MicrobeScope project and see it in action.
“The MicrobeScope is a very powerful fixed focus instrument capable of viewing sub 1micron features of individual bacteria and other life forms at the physical limits of optical resolution. It works great in the field, in the lab, or at home yet is simple enough for a child to use. It doesn’t require any supplies like glass slides, and there are no knobs to adjust.
The specimen is placed directly on the inverted lens, and the internal AAA size battery powered light source provides the illumination. The 800x magnification achieved by this simple device is unmatched by other small scopes and the phone mount is a game changer because of the ability to share real time video.”
The MicrobeScope project is currently over on the Kickstarter crowd funding website looking to raise enough pledges to make the jump from concept to production. So if you think MicrobeScope is something you could benefit from, visit the Kickstarter website now to make a pledge and help MicrobeScope become a reality.
