Kickstarter project

SkyLight, a technology start-up which began life as a Kickstarter project, has announced the release of its namesake microscope-to-smartphone adapter this coming March. The minimalist SkyLight adapter can optically interface any smartphone device to any microscope via a series of simple sliding and locking fixtures, which help to position the smartphone’s camera over the microscope’s eyepiece lens.The adapter is made of lightweight plastics and weighs less than an iPhone.skylight

The project was the brainchild of Andy Miller, a designer and engineer who, as an undergraduate, developed low cost microscopes for the developing world. According to the company, the SkyLight adapter was designed as a simple way to remotely connect doctors to patients in rural locations using existing microscopes and easy to use, increasingly available smartphones.

The SkyLight is a smartphone-microscope camera adapter that stands to revolutionize telemedicine by bringing together two previously disparate but widely available technologies: smartphones and microscopes. Attaching a smartphone with the SkyLight instantly upgrades available microscopes of any age, allowing diagnostic images to be captured on camera and securely transmitted from anywhere around the world to a trained expert able to make that life-saving diagnosis.

Make science education exciting, intuitive, and sharable. The SkyLight allows equipment and the viewing experience to be shared by teachers and students of all ages. Even better, the resulting images and videos can be shared through social media among science and education communities, classrooms, friends, or even with the world.

Share exciting finds with co-workers, friends, and the online community! The SkyLight, a minimalist iPhone microscope adapter, holds any smartphone steady while taking photographs or videos, making it a perfect companion for researchers and adventurers alike. The SkyLight attaches to eyepieces of spotting scopes as well as microscopes, so weekend microscopists or bird watchers can record sightings, confirm species, or just remember those lifetime birds.
