Is it possible to convert my OM2 to digital?

Technician's Assistant: What's the make/model of your camera? How old is it?

It is an Olympus OM-2n as near as I can figure I bought it new in 1979.

Technician's Assistant: What happened right before this popped up? What troubleshooting have you tried?

Nothing happend. I read an arrival about switching a camera to digital and want to see if my OM-2N is capable.

Technician's Assistant: Anything else you want the Camera Expert to know before I connect you?

No just wanting to know
