iPhones and Worms

I recently read a CNN article online that caught my attention.

The iPhone is being used in Tanzania to diagnose intestinal worms in about 200 students. How’s that for using technology in an innovative way?

The article states “scientists recently created a microscope using an iPhone, tape, flashlight and camera lens” with which they were able to diagnose these worms.

According to the article, this can work with any smartphone that has a good camera and zoom feature.

Check out the article below. I found it quite fascinating.
