Make your own digital magnifier for cheap?

One of our favorite gadget sites (Red Ferret Journal) has a bit about a $100+ digital magnifier – pricey and something not a lot of us will buy, but you could use our past tip to make your portable digital magnifier with your cell phone camera…Link.

I’ve heard about a few cameras for the elderly with big buttons and a simple inferface, maybe they could add a hardware/software feature like this to magnify things or as always make your own – After all we always have our cell phones with us!

    The digital magnifier is mis-priced on the blog. The retail price is $899.00 not the $139.99 posted in the article. That only for the extented 7 year warranty!! Even more incentive to build your own!!

    Lets make one using a PSP
