This project, which began as a class project for UC Berkeley students, uses an ordinary cell phone camera as a medical microscope meant for use in remote or undeveloped countries to diagnose illnesses. The idea is to use the camera with the microscopic lens attachment to take pictures and transmit them over the network for instant diagnosis from remote doctors and specialists. Pretty simple way to get the info you need, we’re curious about the attachment and how easy it is to build.
