Planet Toys Planet Earth Digital Microscope Kit
The Digital Microscope Kit from Planet Earth Toys will have children enjoying themselves while exploring the world around them. Designed to evoke natural curiosity, children can look up close at plants, animals, water and more, through the microscope eyepiece, or on the computer screen with the included web cam attachment.
Put in a prepared slide of a flower petal and turn the focusing ring until you see it show up in the microscope as a pretty random pattern of spiked edges. With three magnification levels at 100x, 300x, and 900x, you are able to take three distinct looks at the petal.
The web cam can also be used to observe large objects that donít fit under the microscope. By simply screwing on an adapter and installing the included software, you can connect the web cam directly onto the top of the microscope, letting you see the microscopic images on your computer screen. This is, of course, a toy microscope, but you will be amazed by professional seeming results.
Once connected to your computer, you can take photos and capture videos of all everything you are looking at under the microscope by simply clicking a button.
