With this concept microscope by Kate Dekhtyarenko, scientific researchers would no longer have to get back to base camp or to a well-equipped laboratory in order to examine any specimens that they've collected on more remote expeditions. This clever contraption is extraordinarily lightweight and can be reconfigured for maximum portability.

The frame of the apparatus is triangular and sturdy, enabling it to be set up on a variety of uneven surfaces. It's got a tiny transparent table that's adjustable and designed to hold microscope slides. The device's lens is ideal for getting a good glimpse of even the smallest of samples and it doesn't rely on high quality natural illumination. This microscope by Kate Dekhtyarenko has an integrated light so that you'll get a good view on-the-spot, requiring you to collect fewer specimens in the field.
