Turn your smartphone into a digital microscope

how do you turn your smartphone into a digital microscope?

For this project we decided to build a home made microscope with a plank of wood, and plank of plexiglass, screws and the most important thing: the lens!!
 Our lens was found in a computer's CD player.
We have already determined the focal distance of our lens and it brings us beautiful results like this:
our lens can zoom 40 times.

 We have seen how to make this homemade microscope on youtube at this adress:
