When in the field, it’s hard to look at a monitor or a microscope eyepiece. Can you convert plankton into sound so you can hear the samples you collect?
Objective: Convert shape, size, movement speed into sound.
Use USB Zoom Microscope, Python and OpenCV to perform image processing, convert measurements to MIDI commands or use PyGame sound capabilities. Or build hardware using 555 timer, phototransistor and laser microscope. Project laser microscope onto phototransistor to convert movement to sound.
