Children nowadays can almost have the entire world's supply of technology in their bedrooms. For proof of that statement, I introduce the Zoomy Handheld Digital Microscope, a USB microscope designed for use by children as young as three.
I remember having to sign release forms back in school in case I broke the microscope that I had to share with my lab partner. Children now don't even have to worry about sharing as they can easily explore the world around them thanks to this tot-sized microscope. The microscope itself is compatible with both PCs and Macs and can be used using only one hand. Two lenses are included in the microscope, which let children see the world in 35-times or 53-times magnification.
Even though kids are growing tech-savvier every year, it is important to remember that a mastery of iPhone apps and text-lingo don't translate to intellectual development or better grades. I would like to see more gadgets like the Zoomy Handheld Digital Microscope in the future.
