SpitLamp 2013



You are a minority in your own body. Your own human cells are outnumbered 1:10 by the the bacteria, fungi, archaea and protozoa of your microbiome. This hack turns the classic laser pointer projection microscope into a beautiful design objet for your home, allowing you to check in on the larger members of your protozoan microfauna that live in your mouth: amoebae, cilliates, flagellates up to half a milimeter in size.

Developed at Science Hack Day Berlin 2013
Team SpitLamp: Andre (laser optics), Nuria (spit), Sere (design), Marc (more physics), Lucy (idea)


Lightning talk for the re:publica science hack day , 3-4th May 2014, Wikimedia Deutschland e.V.
