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.
