Playscope is a project by 1st Playable Productions to provide an opportunity to use microscopes, along with a smart-phone device, to interact directly with living organisms. The project is early in development, and is focused on designing, iterating and collaborating with educators to identify a way to transition our initial prototypes into a viable and engaging product for students and bio-enthusiasts to use. This project was funded (in part) by the NIH grant PA15-269 awarded jointly to 1st Playable and Prof. Ingmar Riedel-Kruse, Bioengineering, Stanford University.
