Optofluidic Fluorescent Imaging Cytometry on a Cell Phone [http://pubs.acs.org/doi/abs/10.1021/ac201587a]
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?
