Would You be Interested in Beta Testing the Foldscope Microscope?

Science teaching colleagues,

Could a 50-cent microscope change how we teach health or science to adults in the U.S.?

In a 2012 TED Talk Manu Prakash described a 50-cent, rather sophisticated paper microscope that he claimed could change world health. Could it also change adult health education, health liteacy, and science education in the U.S. ? Would you show this video to your ABE or GED students? To your students in health literacy classes? If so, how would you use it? When they are available, would you get these microscopes for your students to use?
