William Grill needed a better view of his worktable for prototyping. He was using a three-times lighted lens mounted on his workbench, but it wasnâ€™t enough for working on small gadgets. So he created a gadget for gadget prototyping â€” a monitor that can display his work at 12-times scale on his PC. The gadget begins with an inexpensive color security camera and lens. â€œItâ€™s amazing what detail you can see when you view your solder surface mounted parts at 7-, 10- or even 15-times,â€ he says.
