To start, or rather, to prove that the photos I take with this phone are insanely closeup, take a gander of these photos before I show you how I took them.

Ready? You’re going to need an old camera and some hammers. No. I’m not kidding.

However you obtain these small little lenses is beyond my jurisdiction. I’ll tell you this though; if you dont happen to have any of these little lenses lying around on your desk, find an old camera rip it to shreds! (Just a heads up, watch out for shock hazards! Old internal camera batteries hurt.)

 

Before I made this a permanent add on, I’d simply stick one of these lenses in between my fingers and go around with my newly created macro-droid. Only recently did I make this little copper contraption to clip onto my phone.

As always, there’s a retail version of this that’ll save you some headaches, but it was a fun experience for me and I’m willing to share the complex planning on how to make it. Here is how you make it:

  • Find a thick piece of copper wire.
  • Crudely bend it around a camera lens and then bend it around to fit your phone.
  • Put some tape on the end so you don’t scratch your screen.
  • The end.

Go crazy and enjoy.
