With Tele-Immersion you will interact with your friend on the other side of the globe through a simulated holographic environment. This technology will change the way we live. Tele-Immersion is a technology that can be virtually realized by 2010 and can be implemented by internet 2.It allows various people from various geographic locations to come together. Tele-Immersion differs from virtual reality by the way that virtual reality allows us to move in a 3D environment whereas Tele-Immersion only creates a 3D environment. The applications of Tele-Immersion are very large and it is a technology that is going to affect various sectors. Tele-Immersion will take to new heights the idea of video conferencing. This paper deals with the uses, future and applications of Tele-Immersion. It also deals with the components used to recreate the holographic environment, display technology.
1) Collaborative Engineering Works
Teams of engineers might collaborate at great distances on computerized designs for new machines that can be tinkered with as through they were real models on a shared workbench. Archaeologists from around the world might experience being present during a crucial dig. Rarefied experts in building inspection or engine repair might be able to visit locations without losing time to air travel.
2) Video Conferencing
In fact, tele-immersion might come to be seen as real competition for air travel-unlike videoconferencing. Although few would claim that tele-immersion will be absolutely as good as “being there” in the near term, it might be good enough for business meetings, professional consultations, training sessions, trade show exhibits and the like. Business travel might be replaced to a significant degree by tele-immersion in 10 years. This is not only because tele-immersion will become better and cheaper but because air travel will face limits to growth because of safety, land use and environmental concerns.
