ProScope Micro Mobile Turns Your iPhone or iPad into a Microscope
April 25th, 2013
Bodelin Technologies has unveiled a new product that turns your iPhone, iPod Touch, or iPad into a fully functional microscope. The microscope itself has precision optical glass and supports magnification of 20x to 80x.
It has 12 white LEDs arranged into alternating circles to provide polarized or reflective lighting. The lighting intensity is adjustable via a three-way power switch. Power for the LED lighting system comes from an internal rechargeable battery good for up to five hours of continuous use. The battery charges using a USB port.
The microscope hardware is the same for any of the Apple gadgets. The part that differs between devices is the sleeve that connects the microscope to the device’s camera. The company offers sleeves for the iPad, iPad mini, iPhone 4/4S/5 and the iPod Touch fourth and fifth-generation.
