Digital Magnifiers

The RUBY handheld video magnifier is a small and lightweight digital magnifier with a 4.3-inch, full-colour screen.

The RUBY can be placed flat on a surface, or the handle unfolded to use it like a standard magnifying glass and see everything with enhanced contrast. You can also change the text and background colour combinations.
