Paper Abstract

This paper reports on the initial developmental stages of an endoscope that can be used for medical and other applications requiring 3-D images. The conceptual basis for the design is derived from our prior efforts in the development of 3-D scopes for laparoscopy and from telepresence research with head-mounted displays for use in virtual reality. We include the initial results of the development of the viewing system and the design for the scope. Specific future research efforts and developmental phase also are described.
