Today Microscope.com launched the Explorer Series of digital handheld microscopes. Designed to inspire schools, students and families to explore the microscopic worlds around them, the Explorers combine good quality optics, robust software and remarkably low prices to suit tight budgets. They are extremely easy to use for ages 3 and above and with the creative series of accessory kits offered with the Explorers, they also make a thoughtful and fun Holiday gift.
The Explorer Series include two PC/Mac compatible, USB models with either 1.3 megapixel or 5.0 megapixel resolution and a remarkable WiFi model that can connect up to three iOS and/or Android devices simultaneously.
The two USB models include 10x-50x, 200x variable magnification and include a back-up plastic stand, image capture and measuring software as well as a calibration slide to ensure accurate measurements. The microscope can capture live image video or stills at the touch of a button on the microscope housing or by using the included software via a mouse click. Measuring capabilities include line, circle, area and angle among others. Each microscope can compare two images, side-by-side at the same time.
The WiFi model includes 10x-80x variable magnification and a free App that can be downloaded from the App Store or Google Store. It is easy to download and once connected, produces instant live imaging and stills. Best of all, the Explorer WiFi can connect up to three iOS and/or Android devices simultaneously so it is perfect for tablets, smart phones and iPads. The Explorer WiFi works well on field trips or on simple walks in the back yard.
“We have not seen any high quality digital microscopes at such a low price” said Charles Crookenden, President & CEO of Microscope.com. “They offer a very strong solution for schools while my kids have really loved playing with the WiFi microscope at home. It’s almost impossible not to be drawn in and engaged by them – from the bright white and orange housing to the crystal clear images that pop up on the screen!”
Microscope.com has packaged the Explorer microscopes with a variety of creative accessory packs for the Holidays to make the purchase decision easy. These kits include Forensics & Fingerprints, Rock Hounds, Microbiology and Owl Pellet kits.
