(WXYZ) - Analysts predict 46.5 million iPhones will be sold in the weeks leading up to Christmas--and with those phones will come thousands of apps and add ons.
If you have a budding astronomer or scientist on your shopping list, Arcturus Labs has the perfect gadget to make that iPhone complete.
The Magnifi iPhone case turns your Smartphone into a high quality photo capture device for telescopes, microscopes and binoculars.
The Magnifi is the brainchild of Isaac Penny and his wife.
“In graduate school I was using microscopes a fair bit for my research," Penny tells us in a Skype interview from Singapore. "And everyone around me was holding the phone up to the eyepiece and taking pictures because it was a lot more convenient and higher quality than the cameras that were attached to the microscopes. ”
The case slips over your iPhone and then couples with an eyepiece adaptor using and SLR-style bayonet connector. Using the built in iPhone camera app, you simply fine-tune the image alignment, focus and snap. The result is an incredibly detailed image.
The Magnifi is available for iPhone 4 and 4s now for about $80, but developers are about to release an iPhone 5 case.
