DIY Tech Changing ScienceBy Shane R
Do-It-Yourself technology is changing the way countries can teach, grow, and build economies through the realm of science. One example involves microscopes. On average, modifying a microscope can cost $5,000 to $10,000. But, a researcher out of Brazil named Gustavo Batista Menezes decided to go a cheaper route and had the same positive outcome. With the help of $2 infrared lamps and a $1 Plexiglas stage, the microscope was adapted in 12 minutes.
This example is the wave of the future. Not everyone can afford to spend so much money on the newest technology, but cheaper, more cost-effective options are available for use in science businesses worldwide. With the help of 3D printers and other electronic mechanisms, people can innovate like never before. It is quite impressive!
When it comes to DIY projects, people are in two folds of the equation. First, many people are just excited to be apart of something exciting where they can make something that is cheaper and more effective. In turn, they can sell their product to others across the world. On the other hand, some people cannot pay exuberant amounts of money for the technology they need. They can then create it on their own and push forward with technology made from their own experiences.
This is the future of innovation. Tech and science will grow and develop into cheaper and cheaper options for all people to use. With this in mind, knowledge and development will make the tech world a bigger and better place.
