I love foldscope moments – since things happen that are hard to predict. This is a collection of Stanford faculty (from Biology, Bioengineering, civil etc.) all hanging out at the beach Foldscoping – and suddenly we uncover a beautiful phenomena. Sorry for the clicking sound on my phone; but enjoy the “aha” moment.
Here is the actual root tip – look how flat it is compared to being 3D. Fantastic adaptation to dry conditions.
I will add papers and data on this soon – but wanted to share this video.
