The scopes.







The above three shots are from CES2012. The company is Dino-Lite. As I recall they ranged from 250 bucks to 500 bucks. I'm not going to spec them out now because my ADD is off the charts. I'm trying to focus today.

I thought it was interesting the example they were using to sell the product was currency dealers. Or watchmakers. I thought of half a zillion other uses. If they wrote a software package for my cell phone, I'd take this thing completely mobile.

The bottom two shots are from a Photonics conference I went to. The microscopes were way more expensive - but, oddly they were using the same examples for how people might use them. If I were the company from the second set of shots, it might put a shiver up my spine if I saw this post. Obviously their product is going to be slightly better. But the Dino-Lite ones might be just good enough for what most people want to do.

I'm sure there must be an app for that. And if there isn't, there'll be one soon. :D

I would just die if there was an app for that.
