Kinect Pod Enables 3D Chats With Life-Sized Holograms [Video]
Cylinders equipped with sensors make it possible for virtual teleconferences.
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.
