“Thanko’s unleashed a USB dental “microscope” to let you check out the inside of your own mouth in great detail — because you’re so much more knowledgeable than a real dentist, right? This puppy’s got six LEDs plus a small CMOS camera so you can shoot JPEGs / BMPs or 1,280×1024 resolution vids of your champers then check them out on your home computer.” – Laura June, Engadget

I think this is a neat device that could help with telemedicine applications. Not that we are dental experts, but hey, maybe it’ll save me the drive to going and seeing a dentist for the 6 month check-up. Let’s hope people will now how to navigate inside their own “chambers” :p
