Intel has developed a digital microscope, marketed for kids at home. I saw this in a catalog (Sam’s Club, I think) and was really excited. An educational computer toy that is fun! You can capture images from the microscope, edit them, print them, email, etc. Fun stuff. But then I found the official homepage and now I’m much less excited. It never comes out and says what the actual magnification levels are (Magnification levels are approximate and have been measured using a 15 in. (38cm.) monitor. Actual magnification will vary according to the size of your monitor is as close as they get.), but all the screenshots look like less than x10. Less than x5, even. Very disappointing, I think.
