New Foldscope Design

Hello ,

I was working on a new design of foldscope. I had An idea of creating quick chnage in foldscope and make it darkfield and brightfield side by side . so that you can quickly change between darkfield and bright field .

so if permission is given i ll post it with all details on a new post or by editing this post .

    Just watched your video, this is so great, I hope you continue to work on your design! And always feel free to share your ideas, they are fantastic! 🙂

    For the set-up you designed, do you need a spare lens? I heard you mention another video with to show the assembled set-up, i’d be interested to see it all together in action…

      Thans for interest
      I cirrently have no one to hold my camera
      And due to voting in our country the xerox are also closed
      I have got the spare lens from dvd player
      If you understood my video then there are files for foldscope in up comment
      You could have those and build one your self
      Or wait for a day to have a good tutorial
