Random build of the day: a magnifying lens for Smartphone

One day, i woke up with the need of Google cardboard goggles... so i sought for two 45mm lenses in my everything-you-need-is-there (aka slag heap) and found an old broken cine-camera with an about 30mm focal lens: Not good for cardboard, but perfect for a magnifying tool!
The early prototype
Foamboard is the answer

The Result
Some radom pics

And now here is a small chip:

  • First a pic of the set up
  • Then the chip
  • And finally a cropped version of the pic to see how good is the result!

Yeap, the gold wires aren't all in good shape ;-)
