    Default Makeshift Microscopes

    I came across this Instructables page a few weeks ago that had instructions on building your own microscope using various materials such as plywood, plexiglass, the lenses from laser pointers, and a smartphone. My dad and I spent most of last night building it (the magnification wasn't as high as we thought it would be, but that's the only downside. It's still a cool idea). Here is what we got:

    Cat's whisker magnified-

    Here are pictures of my setup, and the links to the instructable if anyone's interested.
