Abstract

Control interfaces of microscope stage have been conservative because they historically precede compact mechanisms which can be used in dark rooms with the sense of fingertips. However, there is a trend of expanding frontier in microscope interaction. New kinds of interactions for microscope are proposed and the freedom of stage control increases by hexapod micropositioning. We propose a tangible microscope which has an intuitive stage control interface. The interface combines a tablet device and a hexapod stage. Because a stage is a plane, we virtually assume a stage is on one’s palm. It is very intuitive that the stage moves in the same manner of palm’s move. As a proof-of-concept, we constructed a prototype by regarding a tablet as a palm. We haven’t any quantitative evaluation yet, but it is expected that the concept of tangible microscope brings a new sense of stage control to users.
