Paper Abstract

This system has been in development at Keio University in Japan and pulls together several techniques including Micro Archiving and interactive stereoscopic displays. The exhibit, shown at Siggraph, engages visitors who are invited to visualize and interact with microscopic structures that cannot be seen with the naked eye, but that commonly exist in our everyday surroundings. The exhibit presents a virtual world in which dead specimens of bugs come back to life as virtual bugs, and freely walk around - visitors interact with these virtual bugs and examine the virtual models in detail.
