REAL AUGMENTED REALITY TELEPRESENCE // MOBILE AR LAB // NYU!!!
Open Telepresence makes a real time, 3d copy of a physical location that can then be seen with AR at any location around the world. Open Telepresence lets people see another person, place, and or event as it’s happening in full 3d from the other side of the world. People use a mobile device such as a smartphone or tablet to view the 3d content. The experience is like viewing a hologram of another real world location.
People walking down the street can see building exterior walls disappear and look inside them in and see what's happening at that moment. Users can also see other locations in real-time viewed around the world. Users can place an ocean beach in front of their office work space. User’s living room walls will dissolve and they could see their son or daughter's living room across from them. People can see and talk to each other in real-time 3D from across the world. Reporters and bloggers can share events from remote locations with the rest of the time. Open Telepresence creates the final generation of networked communication by allowing users to be present in 2 locations at once. The project will be open-source and compatible with Unity.
This project was made by NYU's Mobile AR Lab [directed by Mark Skwarek].
