Photomicrography was out of the question for all but the most expensive microscopes. Intel, the computer chip makers, and Mattel, the toy designer, have in partnership designed a very educational toy, to teach optics, imaging and computers.

Digital Imaging System – The QX3 uses an innovative new CMOS digital sensor technology to produce images that can be captured as stand-alone, time-lapse, or digital movies. The second connector also contains five wires two colored black, and the other three red, green, and white that compose the USB cable and are attached to a magnetic noise filter inside the microscope body.

The working distance is quite good at about 25 – 28 mm. One advantage of the QX3 is the ability to detach the magnification part of the microscope from the slide-view cradle. Baby inhel, 2mm long shows up quite nicely at X.

The accompanying software package provides an interface that is very nicely inrel with excellent graphics and audio clips that are presented through a kid-friendly layout.

Likewise, the most finely tuned research microscope will produce poor images of unsuitable specimens. Overall, the QX5 is a well-justified investment for your itel and teenagers.

Place them in a small container for protection against loss. Note the electrical contacts Figure 2 that connect the lamp housing to the microscope body circuitry.

These chiles grow around my yard; if you should ever bite into one OH OH, one would be very sorry, but they make wonderful salsa, with tomatoes etc. Performance Enhancing Modifications – Although the QX3 microscope is solidly built and practically indestructible, we have found that several minor modifications greatly improve the overall performance of the microscope.


The digital electronics circuit board is attached to the stationary turret housing with three Phillips-head screws that have a flat washer extending from the screw head qx one-piece unit. This improved interface allows visitors to experience the “look and feel” of the QX3 microscope software.

This gallery was constructed to highlight the best images that we have recorded using advanced condenser systems with this incredible toy microscope. This action will be obvious to Mattel support engineers and will violate the manufacturer’s warranty.

Careful thought must be expended on specimen preparation, which is unarguably the single most important aspect of good microscopy and successful photomicrography. Together these eight angled shafts provide correct alignment and positioning for the two body cowlings with respect to the turret and body faceplate. Construction materials used in the assembly of the microscope are typical of those found in many modern toys.

There is also drilled boss inside the stationary turret housing that is covered with the yellow polymeric glue-like substance. It is possible to obtain spares from Mattel, and it’s probably a good idea to have some on hand along with extra light bulbs.
