How "Dot" Was Made:

I just loved the animation I showed you yesterday. Today, I thought I would share, how it was made.

The cellscope was created by Professor Daniel Fletcher, of UC Berkeley, as a way for doctors and medics working in remote and/or impoverished areas to take photos with the microscope attached, of blood samples and other specimens and be able to send the image via their phone to any medical or science lab in the world for analysis. Pretty cool!
