SEATTLE, Aug. 1, 2013 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- A microscopic nematode worms its way across a Petri dish exhibiting unique genetic characteristics. A plant's roots burst forth from the seed and it breaks through the soil rapidly wriggling upward toward the light. An eager student captures these events and prepares a video to share with her class. Time lapse photography can bring drama and engagement to a wide variety of subjects and help students connect with Science. Exo Labs is working to facilitate that connection.
Today Exo Labs announces a great new tool for empowering students of all ages to create their own time lapse movies. This new time lapse feature will be delivered as a free upgrade to the existing Exo Labs Focus App and is perfect for recording microscopic processes that happen over time, like cell division. The Focus App is used in conjunction with their Focus Microscope Camera that connects virtually any microscope to an iPad®.
In addition to microscopic time lapse video, Exo Labs also makes it easy to film larger specimens in action. An alternative lens option makes the Focus Camera a stand-alone device. The new time lapse feature will enable the filming of larger processes or events, such as a seed sprouting.
