Make your own Raspberry Pi camera-based microscope using Raspberry Pi. via instructables

A Raspberry Pi camera-based microscope, built just from LEGO parts.
Introduction and overview

Materials used:
– a Raspberry Pi 2 running on Raspian, with Python and Mathematica installed; a LG monitor, a Logitech K400R keyboard.
– a WaveShare “model B” Raspberry Pi camera with an adjustable lens (focus length: 6 mm);
four M2 x 10 mm screws and eight M2 nuts, used as spacers between camera and a 4×4 LEGO plate.
– a bit of hyperthermoplastic plastic to glue the camera/screws to a LEGO plate. Standard hot glue will work as well.
– a selection of LEGO parts I found in my son’s room. Nothing really unusual, but a few LEGO technics parts as toothed racks, gear wheels and worm gear are part of the construct.
– a LED desktop lamp with a goose neck for illumination.
