The ‘next generation’ of the Bionic Eye has been unveiled to media and buyers at both the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas and the Hong Kong Toys and Games Fair.
The hand-held BioniCam has a colour LCD screen and clip-on battery pack to allow kids to take it where ever they go.
Its multi-zoom lens can be adjusted to 100x, 200x or 400x magnification while the built-in camera and flash drive lets kids capture images and video of specimens and then upload them to a computer via its USB key, to be printed, emailed, posted and shared.
The EyeClops BioniCam can still also be plugged into the AV jacks of any standard television, allowing children to see their discoveries on the TV.
The Eyeclops Bionic Eye is distributed in the UK by Vivid Imaginations, however there are not details yet on the new product’s availability.
