This plant identifier is a plant science popularization instrument designed for children. The magnifier has an internal camera and a plant identification system. In using, it sends related information to the observer through earphones, which are connected to the hand shank. We hope children could have a deeper understanding about plants while getting familiar with the nature. The combination of magnifier and earphones is just like a stethoscope, which tries to narrow the distance between human and nature, making every observation like listening to the breath and heart beat of plants.
