When it comes to telepresence, more often than not, images of men and women talking and sharing documents in a meeting often comes to mind. That’s the typical scenario for the business world. Beyond the corporate setting, telepresence solutions are being deployed at sea and in classroom environments.
Even Hollywood has taken a recent interest in the technology. Telepresence solutions have largely been depicted in the movies as nothing more than fantasy and are pitched for their entertainment value of “what could be.” Things like volumetric projections, or the holographic versions of Yoda as depicted in “Star Wars,” while interesting, aren’t viable for common use.
