When you think of a microscope, you likely think of the bulky, old-school tools you used in class. The Veho DX-1 USB Digital Microscope, on the other hand, can be held in your hand. With up to 200x magnification and a 2MP lens, it lets you snap photos and record videos of teeny-tiny things at up to 1920×1080 resolution.
With this package, you’ll also get the calibration software MicroCapture Plus and a user guide, so you can get started using your digital microscope ASAP. You can even record measurements using software, which works on both Mac and Windows. Just plug in your microscope via any USB port, insert the software CD, and you’re ready to start inspecting things.
It’s usually $180, but you can use the coupon code TAKE20 at checkout to knock the price down to just $144 for a limited time.
