Science tools for everyone

When I saw this article, “Science Tools Anyone Can Afford” by John Markoff at the New York Times, I thought it sort of takes citizen science to another level as it makes yet another tool more available to the masses.  How cool is that!?

Here’s a link to another article and video at the Mother Nature Network  on the FoldScope.  It explains the idea behind — and the power within -— of the FoldScope. The article is entitled “This 50 cent Microscope Folds Up Like Origami” by Jean Savedge.
