I think it's worth mentioning something here about the proliferation and widespread use of mobile cell phones by young people. I am sure in many ways these phones are a boon to our lives, but on the other hand, they are also diverting our attention from the real world to the electronically-described one.
Many devices have become available to supplement the smart phone. You might, for example believe you can turn your cell phone into a microscope?
I recently purchased a cell phone microscope to test out it's capability and see if would be as useless as I believed it would be. The image is blurry, and outlines have a prismatic colour artifact. They are simply not good enough! Do not buy them.
On the other hand, you can get adaptors to attach a smart phone to your microscope. As there are no optics involved, I see no reason why they will not provide an excellent means of capturing great microscopic images to share.
