 |  |  |  |  |  |  |  July 3, 2007

This frightening looking gadget from Japan lets you examine every nasty little nook and cranny of yourself and capture on your computer it for prosperity.

USB Microscope Camera

Thanko’s USB Microscope Camera features a high-detail digital camera attached to the end of a long LED illuminated tube. Stick the camera on you skin, in your mouth or in your ear and witness everything you’ve never wanted to know about yourself.

While it can only capture 1-megapixel images, that’s more than enough when you’re zooming in on your body parts at 30x magnification. If you’re really interested in examining your skin pores and receding gumline in gory detail, you can pick one up for ¥12,800 (appx. $104 bucks for us here in the U.S.)
