Phone’s Camera Microscope
Phone and tablet cameras are lifesavers! We snap photos of people and places that we enjoy, but if you are like me you use it to detect even things like take out menus or where you parked at the mall. Or it can also serve as a rudimentary scanner in some cases. Popular Mechanics decided to publish another use for these cameras, which we think you will enjoy.
Hall Davidson, a former math teacher, decided that tablets and phones provide a perfect vehicle for a microscope. Davidson, an employee of Discovery Education, decided his local hardware store and come with the necessary components to visit magnification to create. glued a rubber gasket and a mini-microscope jeweler to iPad did the trick. Popular Mechanics revised slightly its solution glue on the device to avoid. So here goes, directly from the article - a microscope for your phone or tablet for less than $ 10.
A) Housing: Look for a thin hard case for your device. Cases are available online for less than $ 5.
B) Half-inch rubber gasket: available in hardware stores for under $. 1
C) Jeweler Mini Microscope: Also known as currency microscope is known, this tool error in the jewelry industry is often seen used. Look for a unit containing an LED; The cheapest costs around $ 4.
1) Prior to gluing, centering the nozzle on the case through the camera lens aperture.
2) Have the position correct? Glue to half grommet and secure it. Suppose you have to use an iPad, the sealed part of the grommet against the curved edge of the device should be. (The spout is not fully justified.)
3) Once the glue dries, insert the eyepiece into the grommet.
4) Open the camera app, and turn on the LEDs scope for starting the Microverse to explore.
