PhD student saves £100,000

ENGLAND: A student of PhD from Brunel University London has saved himself £100,000 by ‘hacking’ his own kit. Adam Lynch created his own inverted Microscope by adapting a contemptible tool he bought online.

Adam realised a USB microscope he had purchased from a hobby shop could be clamped upside down on a table to produce the same images as its much more expensive official equivalent. He estimates his invention cost around £160, but does not want to patent it because he believes science should be open source.
