The Microcosmos

We believe that the most important part of our company is not the tools themselves, but the communities that use them.

The Microcosmos is the collective term we use for our community of explorers & our online platform. On the Microcosmos site,, users from around the world connect, share their observations, ideas, and problems!

It is a place to collaborate, find inspiration, and learn from fellow explorers. With over half a million Foldscopes distributed to date, it is quite the far-reaching and fascinatingly diverse community.
