Microsoft’s research arm is working on an innovative way to make video calls feel less awkward. The team is using Kinect cameras and projectors to capture an image of a person in 3D in one room and project a life-size version of them in another room onto a chair.
According to the researchers, each person can then see a digital image of the other with the correct perspective, look at them from different angles and interact with them.
The idea behind the Room2Room augmented reality setup is to make you feel like you’re hanging out with another person and converse more naturally.
