I know you’ve all been longing for the day when you could connect a USB-powered microscope to your PC. OK, maybe not, but it doesn’t make it any less remarkable.
The Veho VMS-001 is a USB-powered microscope. At a mere 4.4 x 1.3 inches, the small footprint allows it to rest comfortably on your desk.
Don’t let the diminutive size fool you however, it’s a very capable device. It has a magnification range of 20x-200x. The VMS-001 also allows you to record video in AVI format at a resolution of 1280×960. How cool is that? This enables you to record and store your findings as photos and videos. The videos record at 30 frames per second, so playback is nice and smooth. The 1.3 megapixel sensor allows for crisp snapshots. A white LED illuminates the objects you observe so that every minuscule detail is seen.
The Veho-VMS-001 is a fantastic product. I can’t speak for anyone else, but as a science geek growing up, I would have been in heaven if I had one of these.
