JAKKS Pacific Announces EyeClops BioniCam

JAKKS Pacific EyeClops BioniCam

JAKKS Pacific first released the EyeClops Bionic Eye, an electronic magnifying glass that displayed what it sees 200x on any regular TV; it was a hit with kids.

Now, they’re releasing an update to that gadget, increasing its magnification and incorporating a camera and flash memory. It’s called the EyeClops BioniCam, scheduled to ship later in the fall of 2008.

The EyeClops BioniCam expands the play in three ways:

First, with a simple flip of a switch, kids can adjust the new multi-zoom lens for an eye-popping peek at the world in 100x, 200x or 400x magnification.

Second, with BioniCam’s new portability feature, kids can now take EyeClops on-the-go, with a color LCD screen and clip-on battery pack that allows them to view amazing discoveries right on the hand-held EyeClops unit, anywhere!

Finally, a built-in camera and flash drive empowers kids to capture images and video of specimens and, with the included USB key, upload to a computer to be printed, emailed, posted and shared.
