you cannot really profit from this idea. the main thing is to spread it for almost no price. which company will do that?

Again, groups that don't normally profit at all from microscope sales. I can't really say what the profit margins would look like, but I suppose if they wind up in the black even a little bit it wouldn't surprise me to see it. There's also the less direct benefit for a company to produce these such as better PR which would lead to increased sales.

Also: Just because it costs little to make doesn't mean they couldn't charge an unreasonable amount for it. Why do you think it needs to be spread for almost no price? It would be a rip off, but if it's half as much as normal microscopes people will still buy it.
