The ZumBot will be the worlds first portable and fully functioning mini-photolab for iPad and smartphones.

You can now create high quality macro images with just your mobile or handheld device's camera. The ZumBot allows you to make photos and videos with an additional x20 optical zoom. It also allows the photographer to comfortably capture and work with small objects like jewelry or biological objects without a microscope or any specific device. The ZumBot uses the "electronic magnifying glass" mode to effectively capture and create picturesque photos of minuscule objects. For children, it offers a small objects exploration. This allows them to be able to take a closer look at the small stuff they find interesting.

The ZumBot is equipped with an interchangeable lens system, shadowing lamp, ring and linear light sources that offer the ability to install additional filters, lighting control and scalable work plates. It also easily scans books, notebooks and documents. All you need in order to use the ZumBot is a smartphone or tablet up to 10" and a smartphone/tablet or camera that is at least 3 megapixels.

If you are an amateur photographer, professional photographer or just enjoy taking and creating photos, this new and innovative design might just be what you are looking for!
