Personal Telepresence – The Original

With all the hoopla about “Personal Telepresence”, I dug up this 1994 video segment showing our “Personal Telepresence” concept of 1992 (see this link for the original abstract).

This video is using the CLI Cameo which was the very first desktop videoconferencing system….enjoy.
