3d microscope lens

3D is the buzzword for the year, and for those who are more geek than jock, you will be pleased to know that the activity of hunching over at the science lab and peering through the lens of the microscope has gotten a boost – thanks to Lei Li and Allen Yi of Ohio State University. The dynamic duo have managed to come up with a one-of-a-kind 3D lens which is capable of capturing images simply by circling around the subject – making it different from other 3D microscopes. The engineers crafted the lens using a precision cutting machine that sports a diamond blade, but it is believed that traditional molding methods are able to yield the same results, too.
