Saving Private Ryan Essay A few years ago, a friend gave Jonah what I think is the coolest toy ever: an Eyeclops Bionic Eye, which is a hand-held multi-zoom LED-lit microscope that plugs into any TV that has a composite video jack (the yellow one.) (Here’s a video demo of the model that we have.) I’ve always wanted to find a way to grab images from the Eyeclops and share them but that is impossible out-of-the-box without additional equipment though supposedly a later version adds this functionality. Now I am finally able to connect the Eyeclops to my computer as I picked up a USB video capture dongle (mine’s made by Roxio) that allows you to hook up your VCR or other analog video source to a computer and digitize video from VHS or Hi8 tapes (it should work for audio cassette tapes and vinyl records as well.) Using software called VideoGlide, I was able to take some snapshots and create the pictures below. The full version of VideoGlide costs $30 but the limited free demo of the tool allows you to use it for 10 minutes max at a time, which is plenty of time to produce some nifty images. I couldn’t find any truly free video digitizer software for the Mac but there seem to be a number of good options for PC users. Now that I can digitize its output, I’m really looking forward to revisiting the Eyeclops to see what kind of stuff the kids and I could do with it. There’s some potential here for ds106 too. Maybe we’ll produce the first ds106 microscopic digital story. Phd Thesis In Education VideoGlide puts out images at 640×480. Click on the images below to see the full size version.

  1. Homework Does Not Help Students This thing looks pretty cool, and I suspect these would fit well into the “journey” theme if you take a microscopic fantastic voyage approach. 

    You might try using Quicktime as a capture device, it usually recognizes any USB video signal (look in the preferences for video sources, then choose file>new video recording). If the new Quicktime doesn’t work, download the old version 7.

    Dissertation Writers London Thanks, MBS. The current version of QT recognizes the audio input from the USB vid capture device, but not the video. Going to try QT 7.
