In the past, a microscope might have been an awesome and exciting gift for kids… but now, search engines have replaced hands-on exploration. Designed with this in mind, Skop rethinks the architecture of the modern microscope with digital and optically advanced twists.
Use it at home or take it on-the-go just about anywhere to capture incredible, up-close moments in picture or video and explore the microscopic world around you like never before! Outside, an LED ring light provides a controllable illumination source and works like an incident light microscope. Inside, at a station on your desk, you can explore in transmitted light mode to detect unknown structures and organisms with an enormous data base and augmented reality technology. A built-in APS-C Sensor allows you to capture incredible pictures and share what you have discovered. Connected to a smartphone, your display is transformed into a large viewfinder where you can control the device.
