Everyone in the world today has a smart phone, and we can get a lot of information through smart phones, such as weather forecasts, earthquake warnings, and so on.
Today, 3trivia shared with trivia lovers about how smart phones can help us live a healthier and happier life. The topic of this issue is Portable Microscope.
A portable microscope that can image a single virus has been created by scientists at UCLA. It fits on the back of a smartphone and is designed to be used in places that traditional lab equipment isn’t available. One possible use is for measuring viral loads in patient samples so that doctors in remote areas can monitor the effectiveness of treatments.
A slightly less powerful microscopic imaging device has been developed by engineers from Berkely. As well as potential field research applications, they believe that the devices can be good for the wider community and with that in mind gave a bunch to schoolchildren. The kids took images of items from their everyday environment and made annotations straight onto the smartphone. The people behind the device hope it could become a valuable part of the science classroom.
