A digital microscope that attaches to a computer via a USB port for viewing still and moving images captured at up to ?200x magnification? is due out next month.

?Not only is the Microfix great fun, it can also be used as a great educational tool or for scientific interest,? explained a spokesman for its UK distributor Intro 2020.

The Summit Microfix Digital Microscope plugs into a USB 2.0 port allowing the user to view the live image on computer screen.

Images can be captured by a click of the mouse or at the ?touch of a button?.

The gadget costs £79.99 and is due for UK launch in June.
