Celestron Digital Microscope gives you close-up views of a tiny unseen world

Want to know if you have more bacteria on your hands than on a toilet seat? Check it out up close and personal with the Celestron LCD digital microscope. While it's no electron microscope, this $180 instrument with a 2-inch LCD screen can get you 240 times closer to those creepy crawlies, and even gives you a 1920x peek when you use its 8X digital zoom..

If you want to document your explorations for all of your curious friends, there's a built-in 2-megapixel digital camera to snap some shots, and then you can save all those close-up shot for posterity on an SD flash memory card. Hook it up to your PC with a USB 2.0 cable, and show the world what lurks in the microsphere. Ships next month.
