What can US$1 buy..??

Its strange to think what the various options US$1 is worth in other countries, but now we can add THE FOLDSCOPE. Reading Goats and Soda’s blog on npr.org the options that can now be available to researchers or teachers out in the field are infinite. Below are some images of the foldable microscope. Its exciting innovative work  done to advance knowledge everywhere. Now, imagine the possibilities. Thanks Dr. Manu Prakash !!!

All folded up and ready to magnify: The Foldscope weighs less than two nickels, is small enough to fit in your back pocket and offers more than 2,000-fold magnification.

  1. Woah! I’m really loving the template/theme of this blog.
    It’s simple, yet effective. A lot of times it’s hard
    to get that “perfect balance” between superb usability
    and visual appeal. I must say you’ve done a superb
    job with this. Also, the blog loads extremely fast for me on Safari.
    Superb Blog!
