Mary Shelly wrote about inventions, that “it must be humbly admitted, does not consist in creating out of void but out of chaos.”

In a recent TED talk TED Fellow Manu Prekash shared his experience about chaos in the field when it comes to healthcare in developing worlds. He found, that for lack of a basic tool, the microscope, lives could be lost in waiting days for diagnostic results.

The basic microscope hasn’t changed much in decades – it can be bulky, expensive and hard to use. TED Fellow Manu Prakash and his team have created a microscope made of paper that’s just as easy to fold as an origami – and easy to use. This video demo  shows how this invention could revolutionize healthcare in developing countries … and turn almost anything into a fun, hands-on science experiment.

I found this amazing and thought I’d share it.
