In the micro-scale world, simply printing some text on micro-scale objects requires serious effort, which generates a significant increase product cost. This project applies augmented-reality techniques to micro-scale objects to overcome the issue. By presenting the given data in the microscopic field of view, MicroTips can enrich information once considered difficult to contain in micro-scale areas. The project suggests three kinds of applications: augmenting information, interacting with the microscopic field of view, and simulating an experiment.
