USB is taking over the world: now we have the Nandemo microscope

Health, Weirdness

I’m not quite sure if some of the photos above are NSFW or not, but nonetheless, this article and the accompanying picture are sure to put you off your lunch.

The other USB creators (y’know, not Brando, but the similar-sounding Thanko), are planning on releasing a – get this, geeks – USB-powered microscope.

Dubbed the ‘Nandemo Microscope’, it’ll allow you to get your perve on and provide you with close-up views of all those parts of your body you always wanted to check out. There’s four different attachments to the microscope, which allow you to perform oral exams, look inside ears, and focus in on your skin and hair.

There’ll be a 1.3-megapixel CMOS sensor with 640 x480 resolution (I mean, it’s not like you want to see your inner ear in all its HD glory), adjustable LED lighting plus software so you can save video and images to send to your IM girlfriends, at a price of 12,800 yen (around US$100) which seems mighty tempting. The question which must be asked is, what else you can do with it, wink wink.
