Want to zoom in closer? 22-year-old mechanical engineer Thomas Larson has just the lens for you. It’s called the Micro Phone Lens, and is a tiny little attachment that instantly lets you focus on and capture very small subjects.

The creator is currently raising funds on Kickstarter in order to launch this lens. The campaign has already blown past its goal of $5,000 — at the time of this post, over 1,600 backers have pledged nearly $30,000 to the project. A donation of $15 will preorder you a Micro Phone Lens, which is set to land in September or October 2013.
