Turn Your Smartphone Into A Microscope
This morning I played around with a pretty cool trick. You can turn your smartphone camera into a “microscope” of sorts using a tiny water droplet! I used my fingertip to place a droplet of water over the outer glass of my iPhone lens, juuuuust small enough to cover the glass and be held on by surface tension. Then just hold something up really close to the lens! It works in video or still mode, and I found that having the light on can help.
I chose to investigate a very small and very well preserved Tyrannosaur that I dug up.
I don’t think I need to tell you to BE CAREFUL and don’t hold me responsible if you get water in your phone. Just a dab’ll do ya. Also, best not to mention this to anyone at Ye Olde Smartphone Shoppe, or wherever you buy your gear.
Show me what you zoom in on!!
