Microscope for a dollar!

I’ve always been interested in gadgets that are useful, inexpensive and have many applications. I came across this microscope made out of paper that is one of these. It can be used by professionals, the untrained and students. The microscope costs less than a dollar to make and can be used in classrooms, laboratories and field hospitals. There is also a projector model which can be viewed on any surface at a cost of a few pennies more.
I can see immediate applications of this in field biology, elementary education and nursing. Oh, it’s rugged too.
