The Macro Cell Lens Band is a strap-on macro lens that fits over a user’s smartphone camera allowing them to shoot incredibly detailed (and occasionally uncomfortable) close-up shots of any doodad, thingamajig, ant’s face or eyeball they deem worthy of taking up precious phone memory.
The product’s design is ingenious in its simplicity for it’s really no more than a super-durable rubberband with a plastic lens stuck in in the middle. Users need only strap-on the rubberband so that the embedded macro lens is positioned over their smartphone’s lens and will then be able to shoot the tiniest details. When not in use, the band can be worn around the wrist or wrapped around a credit card and put in your wallet for safe keeping.
We fastened the Macro Cell Lens Band onto an iPhone 4s and took a few shots around the PSFK office and were all pleasantly surprised by the quality of the close-ups the lens produces. Click on the photos below and let us know what you think.
