Mobile devices have become so popular as both still and video cameras that we now have lens attachments for phones and videocamera rigs for tablets. The ScopeAround system aims to add to that revolution by making affordable versions of scientific cameras that stream video to iOS or Android devices.
The ScopeAround lasts up to 3h per charge and has three hot-swappable camera heads. The Focus head is a microscope with a 1080p camera that provides up to 150x magnification.
The Flexible head is an endoscope, for exploring hard to reach places. It also has a 1080p camera.
Finally, the Fit is somewhere in between the other two cameras. It’s a wand with a side-mounted camera that has a macro lens.
Aside from showing live feed from the attached camera head, the ScopeAround app will also let you save videos.
Pledge at least $99 (USD) on Kickstarter to receive a ScopeAround unit with one camera head of your choice; pledge at least $219 and you get the unit and all three camera heads.
