I just ordered this flimsy-looking 60X microscope that attaches to an iPhone. Naturally, it's from Brando, that notorious purveyor of irresistible craptucular geekery that no one needs. It was $17.50 with free shipping to the U.S. I can't wait to try it!

iPhone 4 Microscope with White 2-LED and Note Detector LED



  1. I just bought one of these from an old lady in a rock and fossil shop in Amsterdam during my vacation… I had no idea it was supposed to attach to an iPhone, and I don’t have one, but it’s a decent portable microscope. I still have an older one about the size of a candy bar, and this outperforms that one easily. The only drawback is that it uses those annoying little button batteries… but on the other hand, since it uses LEDs, I won’t have to change them as often.
