USB Microscope with 2GB Online Storage

USB Microscope

Remember last year’s USB Pen Microscope? A new model has now been released, featuring a resolution of up to 1600×1200, compared to the original 640×480.

Plug it in and it brings an image up on your computer screen of whatever the slick looking microscope is pointing at – you won’t even have to strain your neck peering into a dusty eyepiece, it’s all there on your monitor in full colour and with up to 200x magnification.

As if this wasn’t enough, the manufacturers have also included a program that gives you up to 2GB of online space, so that you can share your scary close-up photos and access them on any computer. It’s a window into a whole new world.

  1. Maybe this could be a great gift for anybody that makes presentations. If it can Zoom out far enough to show a full size sheet of paper (8.5″ x 11″) AND the person has a computer AND the person uses a projector and the computer in his or her presentations.

    For teachers who have LCD projectors and a computer connected to the projector, but who can’t get ahold of a document camera or document reader for showing student work to the whole class in “real time”, this COULD be an option…IF, like I said, it can zoom OUT far enough.

    What about zooming OUT capabilities? I currently have an ELMO (Brand Name) document camera (or document reader?). It does have a “microscope” function which I used to show students the head of a live praying mantis. It was like watching National Geographic! Yet I can also zoom out far enough to take a picture of something at least 15 feet away…

    The ELMO is more expensive than this gadget here, but the version I have does not take video, only still pics.
