A new low cost device for skin monitoring

This project is aimed to develop an inexpensive device for general public in monitoring skin healthcare condition. The device will be able to take magnified images of skin in order to observe more detailed skin conditions. A low cost version of the device will be able to attach to a smartphone and use the built-in camera on the smartphone to take skin images. Another stand along version of the device will have a camera itself and will be able to wirelessly transmit images taken to other devices, such as PC or tablet. The intern will develop a working prototype for the device and transform it into a commercial product. The partner organization will benefit from the product developed by the intern and be able to further conduct manufacturing based on the intern's work.
