QX7 USB Microscope. Get children and adults
to play the smart way with the QX7 USB Computer Microscope. The QX7
microscope magnifies anything from 10x all the way to 200x.
You can view everything from the
pre-prepared slide of a honeybee leg to a close up of your own tongue.
The QX7 is not only a microscope
though, it also serves as a multi-function digital camera for taking digital
still images and creating time-lapse movies. The QX7 USB Microscope also includes photo
manipulation software that allows them to create and experiment with special
effects and audio effects, which can all be inserted into the same images taken
with the QX7. The QX7 USB Digital microscope is a great item for any child or adult with an
imagination, and will keep them happy for a long time to come!
Overall design features of the microscope are
stylish and simple, yet they take advantage of state-of-the-art video imaging
and computer technology allowing amateur scientists to explore their environment
with optical microscopy at magnifications up to 200x.
Electrical power for the camera system and
specimen illumination lamps is obtained from the computer through the Universal
Serial Bus (USB) port. Information and control commands are also passed between
the computer and the microscope using this pathway. The accompanying software
package provides an interface that is very nicely done with excellent graphics
and audio clips that are presented through a kid-friendly layout. Students are
able to capture single images, make movies, and perform time-lapse
investigations on a variety of specimens with a single click of the mouse.
This USB Microscope is Much More Than Just Slides
The most impressive thing about this microscope is the fact you can take it out
of its slide-viewing cradle. As long as it's still plugged into the computer,
you can magnify anything with it: the hairs on your arm, your eyeball, flowers,
or even the hidden microscopic text on money. While it is harder to focus using
the microscope in handheld mode, it allows children to interact with a moving
and alive world, rather than the pre-prepared, dead, flat world of the
Make Movies of the Microscopic with the QX7 USB Microscope
Another killer feature of the microscope is that it's not just a stills camera,
it's a movie camera too. Carpet fly-overs, centipede's leg articulation or flies
digesting their food can all be captured. You can even create a time-lapse
movie. Photographing a sprouting seed over hours and then playing the images
back as a movie is an amazing leap forward from the static view of a traditional
Image Capture and Editing
With the CD-ROM software included with Digital Blue QX7 USB Microscope you can capture
images and manipulate them with simplified, but still very useful paint tools
and special effects (including fly-eye, kaleidoscope and atomic glow). If this
pretty versatile array of image manipulating tools isn't enough you can even
import or export your captured images to other programs.
Kids can share their creations by printing their projects as posters or stickers
or by e-mailing images to friends. Children can also create their own slide
presentations by sequencing and editing the captured images, video clips and
time-lapse movies and adding music and sound effects.
Well Suited to the Very Young and Old Scientist
The unit itself appears robust, is brightly colored and very simple to
use...even parents will understand how it works. Time has been taken over the
computer interface too. All captured images and movies are stored in one easily
accessed collection window. Image manipulation is straightforward and very
"undoable" if you make a mistake. Most kids should be able to enjoy the product
as soon as it's installed and features like spoken word help will guide them
through the more complicated functions.
