3D videoconferences

A team of researchers from Queen University, Canada, have developed a 3D cylindrical display called telehuman.

The technology, which includes Microsoft kinetic sensors, a 3D projector, a convex mirror and 1.8-metre tall translucent acrylic cylinder, resembles a Star Treck holodeck.

The videoconferencing pod allows people in different locations to communicate with each other. “Why Skype when you can talk to a life-size 3D holographic image of another person?,” explained professor Roel Vertegaal, director of the Human Media Lab on its website.
