  • Mod Your Microscope with iPhone 4 Accessory

    Conjuring images of an on-the-go mad scientist who needs a mobile microscope to hatch evil plans wherever his Apple-friendly laboratory is located, the new iPhone 4 60X Microscope will hopefully be used primarily for good (I have an active imagination, okay?). What isn't imaginary, of course, is this very real - and very unconventional - iPhone 4 accessory that is now available for purchase.

    Courtesy of the folks at Brando, the iPhone 4 Microscope comes with a white LED for use "under Dim/Dark environment," and also a note detector LED for "watching the water mark of the paper note." Other practical uses for this accessory? Not sure there are many - at least not until Apple releases the iLaboratory for the aforementioned mad scientist. But Brando advertises the unorthodox iPhone Microscope as a great way to "have more fun" with your iPhone 4.

    If you're wondering, the iPhone 4 Microscope costs $17.50 and is available now through Brando's online digital storefront. Although the makers don't suggest affixing the attachment to the iPhone 4's front facing camera, doing so could make FaceTime conversations a lot more up close and personal.

      I bought the exact same microscope at a flea market for $2.00 in AZ. I have been holding it up to my iPhone for pics closeup for months. It is basically a case that accepts the scope.

      i think this is a cool add-on it's under $20, i mean throughout the week the average person spends more than $20 on drinks and snacks during the days, so even if it's not the greatest thing, still not bad for the price
