One of the new Windows 10 devices Microsoft showed off today was the new Turn T201 from a company called JP.IK. The device is a simple Windows 10 convertible device built for education purposes.

The device also packs a neat little webcam called the Microlens which can be used as a microscope for science-related tasks using the 30x magnifications lens and it also has a Thermal Probe that can be used to detect and monitor the temperature.
