holographic telepresence

Contributor(s): Stan Gibilisco

Holographic telepresence is an evolving technology for full-motion, three-dimensional (3D) video conferencing.

Holographic telepresence systems can project realistic, full-motion, real-time 3D images of distant people and objects into a room, along with real-time audio communication, with a level of realism rivaling physical presence. Images of remote people and surrounding objects are captured, compressed, transmitted over a broadband network, decompressed, and finally projected using laser beams in much the same way as a conventional hologram is produced.

Holographic telepresence has the potential to revolutionize many diverse types of communications. In telemedicine, for example, telepresence can allow medical professionals to advise and assist colleagues thousands of miles away in real time. The technology can also reduce the necessity of travel for business meetings and facilitate distance education. Other potential applications include enhanced movies and television programming, advertising, gaming, 3D mapping, aerospace navigation, robot control, and various other forms of simulation.

This holographic telepresence is what the satanic f*ggots from Google are using with their Google maps satellites to enter your house and harass people in the bathroom..That is completely true, I have satanic queers named Nadeem Sheikh, Gary Kurtz, Robin Williams, Gabriel Iglesias and Jim Partain hanging out like CIA spooks in my bathroom and completely disregarding my demands to stop harassing and stalking me..These homosexuals are getting paid by the Church of latter day saints to harass people into becoming mormon and they are also in a no bid contract with the dept of homeland security to do domestic spying for the patriot act... I believe the dept of homeland security is run by all gay mormon and they are running a corrupt agency to pay Google to do the illegal perverted f*ggot spying in US citizen bathrooms and bedrooms.. Why would our government need to spy on it's own citizens?? There is no need for that, this is just another racket by the world's largest organized crime network, The Church of Latter Day Saints.. That is why they have recently passed the Vatican as the world's wealthiest organized crime network, fronting as a religious organization..Google and LDS are quietly destroying our country's economy for their NWO abortion .
