Building a suitable interface and thematic interaction is often under-appreciated
A virtual meeting can be just like a real-world meeting, only even more boring.
Control music and twitter and applications through moving your face
Create and share 3D models
Similar 3D making collaboration/sharing tool
Run 3D environments/games inside your CMS, Moodle etc
Can combine 2D artist palette with 3D world i.e. design in real-time, alternative to Second Life?
View screens of distant users via a game engine (UNITY)
Unreal game technology via Skype as a teleconferencing 3D medium
These centres/organisations are revolutionising the inside/outside convention of computer screens
You can use game engines for collaborating viewing and interaction AND for teleconferencing, potentially
Integrate human plays with puppet controlled characters-hybrid drama using game engines
The HIVE being constructed at Curtin, unusual in having all displays in same space
Could we use HIVE displays for teleconferencing in stereo?
