I have made my own microscope inspired from FOLDSCOPE based on single lens microscopy. But not too clear images of slide like FOLDSCOPE.

 I am an undergraduate student in Lucknow Univesrity. I read about the Foldscope paper in PlosOne. I could not get access to it – so I tried making one of my own. Here are a few pictures.

    It was wonderful to meet you in person Akshat. Your enthusiasm and creativity is commendable.

    Now, you have your own foldscope – I can not wait to see all the observations you will share. Also, feel free to modify/hack/break/join/build the foldscope. Real learning happens when you bend what’s possible.

    Keep exploring. We are all here to help.
