Easi-Scope is a hand held digital microscope. This simple plug and play device attaches to your computer via USB and includes its own LED lighting system.
Simply hold the Easi-Scope over the object, focus by turning the top, then take videos or still images using the single control button at up to x43 magnification (using a 17inch monitor)
The Easi-Scope is ideal for use in Science for the study and investigation of 3D objects which normally could not be placed beneath a standard microscope (i.e. the human body, large objects from the environment like branches, mouldy sandwiches).
The Easi-Scope is also a very good writing stimulant in Literacy. Images/Videos collected from the Easi-Scope can be used for creative writing. The use of the screen filters add context to the images.
Easi-Scope also provides the flexibility of working in different environments. If connected to a laptop, students can work outdoors, on excursions or even at home.
