The unique set of mini-lenses for smartphone allowing you to see deep inside the micro-world

Up to four mini-objectives on flexible film which cleanly stick on your smartphone or tablet; entrance doors to the microscopic world for everyone. So slim that you can keep BLIPS on your device, even in your pocket, without worrying to lose it. BLIPS works on all models of smartphones and tablets.

The World’s thinnest objectives for portable microscopy on smartphones or tablets

The BLIPS (patent pending technology) is a set of thin lenses on a composite, multilayered flexible film.
The back side surface of the flexible film sticks on the glass of the mobile device (phone or tablet) covering the camera, by purely electrostatic forces. No glue is used behind the lenses, so there are no sticky residues on the camera once the lens is removed.

Standard and Metal Series: the Difference

Four Amazing Mini-Objectives

We carefully designed four lenses for great easiness of use and optical performance.

A link connecting the standard photography to the microscopy realm. By smartphone.

Blips Macro

Blips Macro allows you to take high definition macro pictures, with optical magnification of about 10 times.

It is extremely thin, about 1/50 inch (≈0.5mm), and very user friendly. This is the first step from “standard” photography toward portable microscopy.

Its working distance, i.e. the distance between the lens and the focal plane, is of about 1/2 inch (≈12mm).

Hence, it can be used like a high power magnification lens for precision works, or for a number of other applications where an amplified electronic eye is desired, from technical use to pure fun.

Examples? Quality check of soldering works, cloth, seam, paints or other manufactures. Needle & thread insertion, self-check of moles, or skin, or nails, check in child’s hair for head lice/nits, insects or spiders observation, check of parasites on leaves, etc.

Blips Micro

Blips Micro permits the use of your smartphone for real microscopy applications.

Blips Micro can recognize details of about 1/7000 inch (≈1/275 mm), so distinguishing cells or other inhabitants of the micro-world. BLIPS Micro is less than 1/20 inch (≈1.2mm) high, and it turns your phone into a real digital microscope.
You need to keep a distance of ¼ inch (6mm) between the lens and the sample under observation to discover tiny details at high definition. With the use of digital zoom it is possible to achieve magnification over 100x*.
