Tech on Tuesday: Summer Smartphone Attachments

Summer is in full swing in Northern Michigan!

There’s still plenty of time to gather up the family and spend some quality time outdoors.

In this week’s Tech on Tuesday, we show you some fun phone accessories to bring along on your outdoor adventures.

My First Lab Smartphone Inspector

This first one is for the science enthusiasts out there. The My Frist Lab Smartphone Inspector turns your phone into a portable microscope. The microscope clips right on to your phone and boasts 60X magnification. It also includes an LED lamp and UV light. This is the perfect attachment for those with a curious mind! I picked mine up at Enerdyne in Suttons Bay for $8.99, but they are also available on Amazon.

Hizek 5 in 1 Universal Clip On Cell Phone Camera Lens Kit – $21.99

Want to take your smartphone photos to the next level? Try a clip on camera lens kit. This Hizek clip on camera lens kit includes a 9X telephoto zoom lens, a super wide lens, 180 fisheye lens, wide lens and macro lens. They easily clip on to most smartphones, adding a little creativity to your photos. These are perfect for the hobbyist photographer, but more experienced photographers might find these lens a little lacking. I recommend always reading through a few reviews before purchasing a smartphone camera lens kit to make sure you’re getting exactly what you are looking for.

Portable Virtual Gaming Bow 

Calling all hunters! This smartphone attachment is for you. The Mozeeda Bluetooth AR Bow and Arrow combines the real world and virtual gaming world perfectly. The Bluetooth bow works with smartphone apps to help you train to be a master archer. Perfect for adults and kids alike, this AR bow is a great tool for archery training or to just escape for a fun afternoon fighting bad guys!

Mini Smartphone Fan

It’s no secret that this summer has been a hot one. Stay cool this summer with a mini smartphone fan! This small and compact USB fan plugs right into your phone. These fans cost less than $10, so I recommend picking up a couple of them as they are pretty easy to break. I broke two in one day last week while trying to keep cool.
