This is a lensless microscope that uses a drop of water as the lens.  Organisms in that drop of water would be magnified and projected on to a wall or other surface.  This is an easy to assemble microscope that only requires a laser pointer, syringe, needle, stand, and projection surface (wall or ceiling).
