Thin Lenses Convert Your Mobile into Digital Microscope
BLIPS is an ultra portable and very affordable set of 2 mini lenses which turns your devices into digital microscopes in seconds
 

A European company has developed a set of thin, stick-on lenses that can turn your mobile phone into a portable, digital microscope, a media report said.

The BLIPS lenses, which come in a pack for both micro and macro shots, come with reusable adhesive, and are slim enough (between 0.5 mm and 1.2 mms thick) to fit into your wallet.

According to BLIPS' creators SmartMicroOptics, the lenses were developed in the Istituto Italiano di Tecnologia in Genoa, Italy.

The exact amount of magnification depends on the smartphone, but with the right digital zoom it's possible to magnify images up to 100 times, the company added.

The lenses are available in a crowdfunding campaign on Kickstarter.

According to SmartMicroOptics, BLIPS lenses can be used by hobbyists as well as professionals.
