Microscopes that hook up to your computer via USB are not new. In fact, on the surface this USB Digital 400x Microscope looks a lot like the USB Microscope and Pen Microscope we’ve covered before. However, the technology is evolving so this model has much better specs, additional features, and costs less money. Although a microscope that can take still pictures and video has a lot of practical applications, it is priced as cheap as a toy and would be a lot of fun just to play around with.
One major improvement of this digital microscope over past models is that, at 400X zoom, this has a much higher degree of magnification. It also generates higher resolution still pictures with resolutions up to 2592 x 1944 pixels (5MP) and better video at 640 x 480 at 30 frames per second. Another major new feature is that this model includes 8 built-in super-bright LED lights. Good lighting is key to much better image quality.
