Micro scanner is a conceptual digital instrument for observing insects to understand how they live in nature.


The main idea of the concept is to allow the observation of insects without harming or killing them.


The Micro scanner does not only allow the direct observation of the insect through the transparent container, but also offers the observation with cameras. Image sections on the screen can be enlarged or viewed from different angles.


The user can take pictures, videos or amplify the noise of the insect.


A scanning function is available that can identify the species of the insect. The Micro scanner can connect to an encyclopedia to search for more information.


Stored data can be transferred to a computer via Bluetooth.


Very importat: After the observation please put the insect back into its environment.
