A Camera Phone that Saves Lives

Daniel A. Fletcher's CelloScope design turns a camera phone into a high-resolution diagnostic microscope that can transmit data from remote areas to diagnostics labs in more connected areas. "To be able to receive analysis and treatment recommendations from remote experts," writes the Tech Museum, "could drastically reduce both the cost and time of performing critical disease diagnosis, as well as provide an early warning of epidemics, in poverty-stricken regions around the globe."
