Deep Space LIVE: Dreams, Illusions and Promise of Telepresence
Tuesday, June 18, 2013 / 8-9 PM / Ars Electronica Center

(Linz, June 14, 2013) Telepresence will take center stage at the next Deep Space LIVE on Tuesday, June 18, 2013 at 8 PM. Professor Henry Fuchs of the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill will discuss whether new technologies like Microsoft Kinect and Google Glass really do deliver what has been a high-tech dream up to now: enabling people separated by great distances to interact as if they were in each other’s presence. The speech will be in English.
