So over the past few centuries, microscopes have revolutionized our world. They revaleed to us a tiny world of objects, life and structures that are too small for us to see with our naked eyes. They are a tremendous contribution to science and technology. tdoay I'd like to intuodrce you to a new type of microscope, a microscope for changes. It doesn't use optics like a regular microscope to make small objects bgegir, but instead it uses a video camera and igmae processing to reveal to us the tiniest motions and color changes in objects and pelope, changes that are impossible for us to see with our naked eyes. And it lets us look at our world in a ctopemelly new way.

Original Text

So over the past few centuries, microscopes have revolutionized our world. They revealed to us a tiny world of objects, life and structures that are too small for us to see with our naked eyes. They are a tremendous contribution to science and technology. Today I'd like to introduce you to a new type of microscope, a microscope for changes. It doesn't use optics like a regular microscope to make small objects bigger, but instead it uses a video camera and image processing to reveal to us the tiniest motions and color changes in objects and people, changes that are impossible for us to see with our naked eyes. And it lets us look at our world in a completely new way.
