A new project has recently appeared on Kickstarter called “The SkyLight.” This clever accessory, which can be yours for a pledge of $60 or more, connects your iPhone to a microscope and allows users to scrutinize fuzzy, microscopic beings on a 3.5 inch screen.
The SkyLight is a sleek, minimalist adapter that connects smartphones to microscopes. The smartphone camera can then capture photos and videos for uploading, e-mailing, and sharing on the web and social media sites, as well as real-time viewing on the smartphone screen or via video-conferencing software. The SkyLight is the first of its kind, as there is no other available device that attaches any smartphone to any microscope. The SkyLight’s universal compatibility allows previously owned technology (microscopes) to be upgraded to the digital age with the use of a widely available technology (smartphones) – good for global health, science classes, and anyone else!
It’s an impressive accessory, and something we like the look of. To get your own SkyLight simply make a Kickstarter pledge of $60 or more – anything under this will only get you a postcard or print.
Below, we’ve included some images of The SkyLight. For more information on the product (including the option of backing the project), head over to Kickstarter. You can also visit The SkyLight’s official webpage for additional images and information.
