    Perhaps you've punched out a paper doll or folded an origami swan? TED Fellow Manu Prakash and his team have created a microscope made of paper that's just as easy to fold and use.

    A sparkling demo that shows how this invention could revolutionize healthcare in developing countries ...

    and turn almost anything into a fun, hands-on science experiment.
