Description:


    Microtelepresence applies telepresence to the microscopic world. A stereoscopic head-mounted display immerses users in a remote microscopic world. Although it is only a few inches square, via microtelepresence, it appears to be about the size of an auditorium. The space is populated with various species of live insects. Relative head movements of the user are sensed with inertial-tracking hardware and control navigation within the microenvironment. This is accom- plished with a three-degree-of-freedom motion stage (basically a converted numerically controlled mill) adapted to a high-quality video microscope. For optimum depth perception, the microscope and display hardware are both stereoscopic.
