Turn Your Smartphone Into a Microscope With a Single $15 Lens

Turn Your Smartphone Into a Microscope With a Single $15 Lens | pixels and pictures | Scoop.it
A Kickstarter project for a Micro Phone Lens makes a camera phone into a portable handheld microscope.
Philippe J DEWOST's insight:

The Micro Phone Lens is a soft lens that sticks directly onto the camera lens on the back of your phone. Users can then zoom into 15X magnification in high focus. The minimum camera requirement is 5 megapixels.


Backers who contribute $15 or more will receive a Micro PHone Lens and plastic carrying case.

After fulfilling the Kickstarter orders, Larson would eventually like to make the lenses available on Amazon. The University of Washington graduate has been working on the business plan for the Micro Phone Lens for over a year.

 

In the future, Larson also plans to release a 150X lens, which will have even more precise microscope capabilities.

The Vyclone mobile video app lets you “create movies that mix your clips with footage taken by other people filming the same events. Instantly. Film an event together, upload your footage to Vyclone and receive a movie with all your combined perspectives,” the company says. “It collects and synchronizes any clips taken at the same time and place. Then it edits them together, cutting between shots to show the scene from every point of view.”
