With a full color LCD screen and battery pack, Eyeclops is the perfect on-the-go device that lets kids explore the world around them, indoors or out. Use the LCD screen as a viewfinder for specimens, zoom in with one of three powerful new magnifications (100x, 200x and an eye-popping 400x) and take digital pictures and video of your amazing discoveries. Save and share your findings with the built-in flash drive and removable USB key. Then, view them on any standard television, and upload your files to your PC to email and send to friends. Requires 5 "AA" batteries, not included. Measures 12"L x 15.75"W x 4.25"H.
The EyeClops BioniCam Video Microscope from JAKKS Pacific opens up a world of microscopic fun for kids to explore. This bionic eye makes it easy to take digital pictures and capture video that documents new discoveries. Designed to keep inquisitive children aged eight and up entertained and interested in the world around them, the BioniCam is also engaging enough to captive adults.
To get started, simply insert five AA batteries (not included) into the belt clip battery pack, insert the included USB memory stick into the top of the BioniCam, and turn the unit on. With the camera's ergonomically shaped handle in one hand, you can focus on any number of everyday objects--such as coins, fabric, your pet's fur, or your own hair and skin. The magnified images appear in real time and full color on the LCD screen. Below the screen, you'll find easy to use buttons that allow you to navigate the menu, select video or photo options, review your gallery, and delete unwanted images.
A zoom dial offers either 100x, 200x or 400x magnification. To focus an image, twist the I.R.I.S. lens attachment until you achieve the results you're looking for. Getting a crisp image takes a little patience at first, especially at the highest magnification. But with practice and with the help of the easy-to-read focusing gauge, you'll be focusing the lens in no time.
Photos and Video Without Complicated Setup
With no software to upload and minimal set-up, the BioniCam makes sharing discoveries easy. Plug the USB memory stick directly into your computer for quick access to images, then save and edit them or post them to your blog. Alternately, you can use the included video cable to display images on your TV. When you are plugged into the TV, the LCD screen turns off, but you still retain all the functionality of the BioniCam. This makes reviewing huge enlargements in real time a fun group activity.
Contagious Fun for the Whole Family
The hand-held magnification "eye" is fun to hold and makes it easy for your child to explore the microscopic world without complicated scientific instruments. Viewing the magnified images on your computer or TV screen in full, vivid color encourages kids to take learning into their own hands and provides numerous opportunities for parents and children to play fun and educational games together.
The excitement of seeing objects in your child's everyday world magnified to up to 400 times is sure to be a hit with whole family. Fortunately, the lightweight, durable plastic unit fits comfortably into both small and large hands. And if you need some help getting started, the easy-to-read instruction booklet offers lots of tips for finding items that hide interesting textures, from pine needles to sponges and insects.
On the lowest setting, the LEDs occasionally prove too bright for viewing lighter-colored objects, and these images may remain unclear on large viewing screens. On the higher magnification settings, however, this did not seem to be a problem, as textures and colors came through flawlessly. And while the battery pack makes it easy to explore indoors and out, the LCD screen can be tough to read in direct sunlight.
Overall, these are minor concerns that should do nothing to prevent this fun, educational toy from being big hit with all kinds of kids.

I recommend this as a great educational toy, especially if you're looking to give a child something that doesn't have them sitting at a video game console or computer for long periods of time. Though the ability to share what they've discovered with online friends will definitely add interest for the modern child. Ironically this might be just the thing to get them outside, learning about the world beyond the ubiquitous electronics of the day.
First off, it uses 5 AA batteries and comes with a 32MB USB drive. It will work with standard USB flash drives (I tried it with a 2GB microSD card and USB adapter). The images are 1280x1024 and the videos can be up to 30 seconds long. The selectable magnifications are 100x, 200x, and 400x. The object/specimen is top lit by three white LEDs.
The problem with this device is mostly with the magnifications. 100x is too much for a low range and 400x is too much in general. Even at 100x, it takes some effort to focus correctly. The microscope has to be directly over the object, and then the focus adjusted. I would much prefer to have 10x, 60x, and 200x.
Not coincidentally, these are the magnifications of the Intel QX3 microscope. The QX3 is, in my opinion, a superior product. It has top and bottom variable lighting, the more usable 10/60/200x magnifications, and better overall construction. Of course the QX3 has lower resolution, requires a computer to operate, and is no longer available.
In the end, the EyeClops BioniCam is a workable product that has definite flaws but may fill a useful role in letting budding scientists explore the microscopic world.
Update: I finally heard back from the manufacturer about our defective item. We can either return it to where it was purchased for a new one (not possible since this was a gift and we don't have a receipt) or we can send it in to JakksPacific for a replacement (mailing at our expense). I will do neither because as luck would have it, two people had the same good idea and my daughter received 2 of these for Christmas. Time to break out the second one to see if that one works ok.
Update: We took our non-working Bionicam apart to see if we could find out what was wrong with it. It was quickly discovered that the problem was in the ribbon cable that connects to the screen. If you held the ribbon cable just right the unit worked fine, but if the ribbon cable moved just the slightest, the screen would get the green lines through it and not work. There was no fixing the item since the poor connection was somewhere inside the ribbon cable.
