Hi all,

Here's an interesting experiment in telepresence, using wired up humans
rather than robots (so I wasn't talking out of my backside re: telepresence
agents after all :-)

"The Tele-Actor is a skilled human equipped with a wireless camera who moves
through and interacts with a live remote environment. Camera images are
broadcast over the Internet to online participants, who interact by voting
with a new interface.
"The Tele-Actor system combines two ideas: (1) a human Tele-Actor who is
more agile than a robot, and (2) collaborative control, which allows many
people to simultaneous participate over the Internet. "
