Introduction: IPhone Microscope

This is a very simple microscope that can fit on your phone.

Step 1: Tools/parts

What you will need:
Copper wire.
Old camcorder.
Wire cutters.

Step 2: Dismantling

The part required for the magnification will be located somewhere in the actual photo receptor itself and since all cameras are different I can't show you how to get to it but we're looking for something that looks like this.

Step 3: Down to the Wire

Next take the copper wire and at about one inch from the end bend it around the glass lens and twist until it's tight. Then wrap it around your phone once so it comes back to the phones camera. Then cut and bend downward so the wire is out of the way of the camera and prevents the lens from moving.

Step 4: Complete
