Latest Invention: See-Through Moving Screen for Better Videconferencing

Share

One of the issues of videoconferencing is that some people feel like they're talking with the monitor and not with the real person.

To solve the problem NTT decided to create a screen that takes video conversation to another level.

First of all the display shows the person in almost real size. In addition, the company used face tracking together with servo motor so the screen could rotate back and forth depending on which videoconferencer the person is looking at.

Another interesting feature of the screen lies in its transparency. Thus, with the background of the speaker removed, it becomes more convincing that the person you talk to is actually there.
