50¢ rugged, printable microscope for diagnosing malaria and more

I watch TED talks every day, but I haven’t been blown away by one quite like this in some time.

This inventor has created a microscope that can be printed on paper for just 50¢, is rugged and waterproof and can be used in the most remote parts of the world to diagnose a whole host of diseases (including malaria) where hauling around and protecting a $10,000 microscope just isn’t practical.

Astonishing creation with potentially game-changing consequences. Keep watching out for news about the Foldscope.
