Thanko's latest wacky invention is an update to one of their old models, a USB Microscope. The new version increases the LED count from four to eight, which means that when you're looking at things anywhere from 20x to 200x larger than they usually are, you'll actually be able to see it better than a blind zombie in the dark during an eclipse.
The USB scope hooks up to any Win 2000/XP/Vista machine with a USB 1.1/2.0 port and gives you mind-blowing resolutions all the way up to 640x480. It's probably not small enough to fit inside your ear, but it does make reproducing a whole lot easier. How'd you think I had all that room in my pants for those gadgets?
