The Beaming project is a concept that uses vistual reality and haptic interfaces to project remote actions onto the suface of a robot.

The Beaming Project is a telepresence concept that uses visual reality and haptic interfaces to record a remote user’s interactions in one locations and mirror those inputs on a humanoind robot located else where, with the possibility of having their actual appearance projected onto the suface of the machine. The robot would be equipped with full sensory data and feedback mechanisms, which would allow a user to receive input from the remote environment.

One example of a possible interaction would be replicating the feeling of a handshake through the robot, enabling both people to feel the pressure being exerted. The concept hopes to bring physical sensation to remote interactions through these increasingly sophisticated interactions.
