Zoomy Handheld Microscope – Peak into another World

prod4416_1_lgWe bought a really cool microscope recently for Ryan’s homeschooling called a Zoomy Handheld Microscope. It plugs into your computer’s USB port and comes with a viewing application so you view what you’re looking at on your computer monitor. You can also record pictures or movies of what you’re viewing. Very cool!

It doesn’t have the strongest magnification, but it’s strong enough to have some fun. Check out some of the images we’ve recorded…

By the naked eye, this bug is about the size and shape of a hyphen - What a surprise to find it had antennae, legs and distinguishable body parts!

If you’re looking for a fun, educational tool that will inspire and excite your kids about the world around them, and doesn’t cost a fortune, I totally recommend the Zoomy Handheld Microscope!
