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, theyâ€™re releasing an update to that gadget, increasing its magnification and incorporating a camera and flash memory. Itâ€™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.
