USB Digital Microscope

USB Digital Microscope
The USB Digital Microscope allows you to capture images in high quality and very close up. With it being USB, it connects to your PC and then shows the images on screen. The software which comes supplied with the USB Microscope allows you to zoom in up to 200X and create screen shots of those objects. As well as taking still pictures, you can also use time lapse movies for items that change over time. The Microscope part is detachable from its stand which allows you to get up close to items.

Costing $199 from Think Geek you get what seems to be a fairly decent microscope with the added bonus of being able to store images captured on your PC.
