3D Printed Attachment Turns Smartphones into Microscopes

Posted Date 02/27/18

Researchers from an Australian biophotonics research facility have come up with a 3D printable clip-on attachment for smartphones that can turn your device into a microscope. The attachment uses the phone’s flash to illuminate an image without needing any external sources of light. The attachment makes the phone-turned-microscope capable of showing specimens as miniature as 1/200th of a millimeter, which means it could be used to study cells and microorganisms. Field medicine and water sample analysis are two of the most obviously suitable areas of application for the technology. The research team, by the way, has made the 3D print design files for the attachment freely available to anyone interested.
