    For a price of two thousand Ruppe (approx. 30 Euro or US Dollar, 20 British Pound), ExpEYES features an audio-frequency oscilloscope with 4 channels, and many additional features, like signal generation and sound sensing. It is delivered together with a booklet of 50 simple experiments which can help you to learn its use, and a few externale components to perform this experiment set.
