The 50 Cent Punch-out paper Microscope!

If you’re not followers of TEDtalks, then you should be. This article really shows the ability that a little design ingenuity can make, with paper.

Perhaps you’ve punched out a paper doll, folded an origami swan, or maybe you received one of The Production House’s die-cut “Captain Print push-out Competition Cards”? TED Fellow Manu Prakash and his team have created a microscope made of paper (yes, you heard correctly, paper!) that’s just as easy to fold and use. A sparkling demo that shows how this invention could revolutionize healthcare in developing countries … and turn almost anything into a fun, hands-on science experiment.

Makes you start to wonder what device you could design that would help you do your job, or impact your sphere of influence.
