E-Supply just announced a “Flat” Digital USB microscope. You plug it into your PC and view your specimens through your computer. It sports a 2 MegaPixel censor that is made by Sanyo Japan and it is capable of up to 150x zoom. On reading more about the product, it seems to be targeted towards elementary kids. Either way, not bad of a product, its the first I have seen of its kind. The E-Supply USB digital microscope is sold in the land of the sun for about $125.
