CellScope - Mini Microscope for the iPhone


Researchers at the University of California developed a device called CellScope.

The device was created for iPhone. Users can attach it to their phone's camera and use to look at different things at a 60x magnification.

CellScope represents a combination of Mini Microscope and light source attached to a sleeve-like housing which slips over the top of the handset.

The magnification lens of the microscope is linked to a LED light source made of 3 bulbs. It would be worth noting that the user can also adjust the angle of the light source.

Two of the bulbs are white and can be used for regular illumination, while the third one can be used to check watermarks on banknotes, reports Gizmag.
