Stereoscopic cameras + occulus + web meetings = virtually being there with the ability to put someone on mute and meet in the executive conference room on the Death Star. Maybe you could put them on mute with a gesture, like a force neck pinch...

       It's going to look a bit weird of everyone in the meeting is wearing VR headsets. You will need some sort of 3D avatar to show the "real" participants.   

       Better to use a 3D screen and have them wear "shutter" glasses which look fairly normal.   

       Not a bad idea, though. Bear in mind that true 3D demands staggering amounts of bandwidth.

       If everyone were in fixed locations, and you pre- recorded generic puppet positions for all body movements from every available viewing angle, you could easily map those movements and project a person's scanned body image onto the puppet. Intense preprogramming and preparation, but low- bandwidth demand.

       Spatial is kind of going there

       I've seen that compilation. Politicians used to kiss babies, don't you know? Big deal.

       Sorry I think I bumped the delete button...   

       // begin subroutine rant If TrumpInOffice=TRUE Then Print "DIE TRUMP DIE!" end rant. //   

       rant (TrumpInOffice)   

       bool TrumpInOffice;   




       putfmt ("DIE TRUMP DIE !");   


       until (TrumpInOffice == FALSE);   

       return (VOID);

       Maybe there is a purpose for the AI construct. That being, to understand the logic and emotions of and find a re-education schemes for some* members of the human race.   

       *probably all. Want to change something, just ask one of the new binary-quantum oracles.
