What Do You Get...

What do you get when you combine a cell phone with a camera, a few LEDs, and some very clever software?  A biological microscope, that's what.

Aydogan Ozcan's fiendishly ingenious idea is to use the processing power of the computer in modern cell phones to analyze an image taken with special side-lighting to create the equivalent of an expensive microscope for just a few dollars worth of plastic and LEDs.  Bravo!
