Abstract:Today many long trips are made because of a need to meet physically. This is especially the case for business travels. If it would be possible to have a long distance contact where it felt like the counterpart was sitting next to you, the need for the actual travel would decrease significantly. This would save both time and energy. In this paper a discussion about technical possibilities to do this is discussed. A review is made over previous research related to the subject. Also ideas are presented on how this could be performed using a simulator model that drives a “mechanical, elastic head” from the information received on-line from a photo taken continuously by the counterpart.
