Zoomed in Pair

One of the stalls at the Makers Faire at the weekend was inviting everyone to make a smart phone microscope - fold up the card, create a focus ovoid on the pencil, pop in a lens and tada
I'm looking at a fine chain here - it really does magnify a lot.  The focus is a bit clunky and you need to have good light but it works and with a camera automatically built in - amazing use of technology.  I know I'm going to be playing with it some more.

Hoping you are all having a good week with plenty of Pair photo opportunities and nice spring weather

It magnifies well and makes an interesting picture but I can't work out how you got there!

Completely intriguing!

It's the 'create a focus ovoid' bit that I couldn't follow! I like the magnification you've got though. It looks like a fun think to do.

Who knew such things were even possible?

Fascinating! I can't quite figure it out, but I love the concept.

I will be showing this to Himself, Helena - I think he'll be intrigued. I like your scientific and adventurous spirit!

looks pretty cool..but the Tada part is sadly missing details!!
I will have to google it to find more info...
