A USB microscope to relive childhood

Digital scope connects to your PC

USB microscope

We've never been able to use a microscope. There, we said it. For whatever reason, slides were always too blurry or we couldn't find what we were supposed to be looking for. When classmates called us over to look at stuff they found, we pretended to see it.

But this ThinkGeek item might help finally heal those adolescent scars: a plug-and-play USB digital microscope. The LED-lighted scope can magnify up to 300X and display images on your PC with software that's included. It also has a camera that can capture photos and do double duty as a webcam, complete with its own stand. And for $70, that's less than a standard therapy session to erase childhood memories.
