The MicrobeScope is a compact and powerful portable microscope that doesn't require any slides or knob-turning to work. MicrobeScope is designed to be extremely user-friendly, so much so, that even kids can use it.

The pocket-sized MicrobeScope is powered by a AAA battery, which provides illumination for viewing just about anything much more closely than the naked eye would ever be able to on its own, up to 800x magnification. In conjunction with the video capabilities of an iPhone, the MicrobeScope enables people to view and share real time video. With the newest version of the iPhone 5s also comes a slow motion capture feature that is extra handy when working with the MicrobeScope.

The MicrobeScope by 4D Optical LLC is currently crowdfunding on Kickstarter and already, it's gone well above and beyond its initial goals.
