This microscope can fold up and fit right into your pocket

This may look like an interesting origami project but it’s a real microscope that can fold up and fit right into your pocket.

The Foldscope is a Kickstarter project that is getting a lot of attention not only because it’s portable and versatile, but also because it’s waterproof and very affordable.

It comes with a 140X lens, which can let you see things like live individual cells, embryos and swimming bacteria.

The Foldscope costs only $1, but if you buy the kit, it will run you $15.

According to its Kickstarter page, the kit comes with a metal storage case, slides, a magnetic cellphone clip and more.

If you’re looking to get your hands on one of these, you may have to wait as it won’t ship until August of next year.
