3D video conferencing demonstrated at US Ignite conference in Chicago
At the�US Ignite conference�meeting in Chicago this week, spectators were able to see the result of what's been billed as theworld's first live-streamed 3D video conference, according to a report by the Chattanooga Times Free Press.
Using a hacked Microsoft Kinect camera, people in Chattanooga, TN, were able to capture video of a person holding a live snake and broadcast that 3D image to Chicago, the report said. While 3D broadcasting technology already exists, this technology, developed by a�Chattanooga group called Engage 3D, holds the promise of changing video conferencing, since, as the group said for the White House Office of Science and Technology Policy web site, it has developed a�web-based 3D broadcasting tool�that is also interactive.
