The Carson zOrb is a USB digital microscope with an integrated camera that displays the magnified images it collects right on a computer screen. Its impressive 35x magnification (on a 14" monitor) allows users to see details of ordinary objects that they never knew existed, and its built-in internal light source ensures a clear and bright picture of whatever is being viewed. Its built-in 640 x 480 resolution digital camera makes it easy to save images captured with the unit on the attached computer's storage device, and it even captures close-focus video! The Carson zOrb is compatible with Microsoft Windows 98SE, ME, 2000, XP, XP Service Pack 3 Upgrade, Vista, Windows 7 and MAC OSX 10.4 or later. A USB 2.0 port is required.
