SkyLight smartphone-microscope mount: Let's get small (video)
Adapter enables users to capture microscopic images -- of everything from flowers to insects to pathogens -- with their smartphone. SmartPlanet visits SkyLight for a hands-on look at the device.
It may not be the first smartphone-microscope combo, but creators of the SkyLight adapter say their device is different: it doesn't use any optics.
Attach the base of SkyLight to a microscope and slide in a smartphone--most any smartphone actually, thanks to the mount's adjustable clips. Users -- whether students or scientists -- can then capture microscopic images and send them via e-mail or to the Web.
SmartPlanet visits with SkyLight creators Andy Miller and Tess Bakke for a hands-on look at the device.
