- Quick Attach Microscope from Skyrocket Toys
- We recommend this product for ages 3 and up
What It Is
The Quick Attach Microscope from Skyrocket Toys is a mini microscope that turns the rear-facing camera on your smartphone or tablet or other media device into your personal microscope. So if you've ever zoomed in all the way with your camera, you know how blurry and unrecognizable the micro objects become. The Quick Attach Microscope clarifies this so you can zoom in on things like the fibers on your sweater or look at your skin or other objects close up under the microscope. Open its spring clamp and position the microscope over your device's camera lens.
Is It Fun?
What we like about it is that without the need to rely on a typical microscope stage to place specimens, you can get a close up look at things from different angles at 30x how it looks to the human eye.
Who It’s For
The Quick Attach Microscope is for ages 3 and up, and will especially appeal to emerging young scientists and explorers.
What To Be Aware Of
The microscope is compatible with both Apple and Android devices, both producing the same results—super magnification.
You'll need to use the zoom feature on your camera to zoom all the way in your specimens.
Remove any chunky phone cases you might have attached.
For younger kids, we suggest supervising as they use the microscope.
