QX3 Microscope

Forget peering through a tiny little eyepiece -- the QX3 shows you the image right on your computer screen.  Imagine a huge full color image and the capacity to take still photo shots and movies. 

You can even modify your captured images to make a fun animated short film complete with sound bytes. 

Hook this baby to your laptop computer and turn your next homeschool fieldtrip into an outdoor science lab excursion.

You can take the microscope off its cradle stand to scan the surface of large items-- or to scan fixed objects and organisms.  Look at tree bark up close or examine a spider web without ever having to disturb or destroy a thing.
