Real-People-Size Communications Video Walls for Outdoors and Indoor areas.
The key to this idea is Real-People-Size. Imagine walking up to a real-people-size screen and interacting with somebody in a different park across the country or the world. This idea consist of two or more high-resolution screen that reach all the way to the ground with microphones/ speakers, high-resolutions cameras pointing at people in front of the screen in two or more locations. These images and sound are transmitted to a similar layout on another location as to create a virtual real-time, real-size communication wall. The cameras are positioned in such a way as to transmit in real time at the correct portions height and width of the participants in front of the systems. These "video walls" could be placed outdoors such as a park where people could walk up to them and and interact and converse with people on another city or location with high-speed fibers. Additionally these real walls could be placed inside offices and other locations such as malls. These gateways could be made so realistic and in such real-time that they might create in us a new sense of space-time and be a gateway between us, between our cities and towards our dreams of a better world through communication and sharing.
