The research team from the Human Media Lab at Canada’s Queens University has created the TeleHuman that enables 3D holographic chats. The remote participant is displayed on a cylindrical tube using 3D projection. The user can walk around the pod to get a 360-degree view of the virtual person, thanks to Microsoft Kinect sensors that track the motion.

The  life-sized 3D video stream produces a holographic effect and allows for a more personal experience. There are limitations to the current technology, such as only one person gets to see the other in 3D, and the system can only be used in one room that is equipped with all the various technology. The image quality needs to be improved for a more realistic effect.

Watch the video below to see a demonstration of the TeleHuman.
