This guy saved eggs from a dead Crystal Shrimp. Opae Ula are much hardier but do drop eggs and I wonder if the eggs can be saved this way?

Very cool video indeed! If you can prevent the eggs going off strait away i think it could just work. You need to be fast before any other shrimp pick them up and eat them though lol.

Video of an dropped egg that I took - 60x times magnification. Not much to see though.

I found this product which would be pretty cool for hatching dropped eggs:

ZET-E55 Fish and Shrimp Egg Tumbler / Incubator

They are not very expensive too,

indeed but i don't think I'd ever get to use it, any dropped eggs would be neat impossible to pick up and that's if they don't get eaten before you notice them lol!
