Abstract : The patent describes a mechanical stage capable of tilting in any direction and rotated 360 degrees at any tilt angle. The stage includes a hemispherical support base which rests upon an O-ring bearing, allowing tilt and rotary motion so that an object located at the center of the hemisphere at a point in space above the plane of the bearing can be tilted and/or rotated without shifting its position in X or Y.
