iPhone Microscope Captures Bacteria Swimming Around In Real-Time [Video]
MicrobeScope is an iPhone accessory that magnifies specimen up to 800 times.
Currently raising funds on Kickstarter, MicrobeScope is a pocket-sized microscope that lets people look at specimen magnified up to 800x on the screen of an iPhone.
Developed by 4D Optical, the MicrobeScope is a fixed focus instrument that can view sub 1 micron features of bacteria and other life forms. It can be used anywhere – at home, in school, on the field – and is simple enough for children to use. It doesn’t require glass slides and it doesn’t have knobs that need to be adjusted.
