Is it possible to make/hack a usb digital microscope to have a digital zoom? Answered

Since USB Digital Microscopes is not as effective from afar, i would like to know if i can change the programming or add components on the usb digital microscope to have a digital zoom feature so that it can be used from afar.

A servo can reposition lenses remotely by USB...

All digital zoom is is a crop and resize, so theoretically you could write software to do this on the fly. The problem is as you zoom you lose detail since it has to start interpolating more and more.

An optical zoom(lenses) is almost always more desirable/functional.
