Optofluidic Fluorescent Imaging Cytometry on a Cell Phone []

What it does

Detects algal blooms by using computer vision to count algal cell populations on lakes

How I built it

Camera on Android device tied to microcontroller such as Arduino, Raspberry Pi, or the new Electron device (The Electron is an Arduino-like cellular development kit with a SIM card and affordable data plan from the creators of the Spark Core.)

Challenges I ran into

Interfacing different technologies and getting communication signals

Accomplishments that I'm proud of

Adding microscopic analysis to the Andruino platform's capabilities

What I learned

Cellular data algal cell counting

What's next for Internet of Lakes

Internet of Oceans?
