Whether you’re a hobbyist wanting to inspect circuit boards or a budding naturalist interested in teensy bugs, you’re going to need way more than 20/20 vision to see what’s going down on a micro level. Veho’s Discovery Portable Digital Microscope, designed for home and commercial applications, features magnifications of 300x (optical) and 1 200x (digital), using 8 LEDs with adjustable brightness to ensure you get the exposure exactly right. Its rechargeable 1 050 mAh lithium-ion battery provides up to two hours of untethered work or play.
Time-lapse functionality allows timed photographs to be stitched into time-lapse movies, allowing you to see the progression of events such as growing mould or decaying food. A microSD slot allows you to save 5 MP images and VGA 30 fps videos internally and download them later to a PC, Mac or iPad. The microscope can also be connected directly to a TV.
