How Robot 'Beaming' Works

 How Robot 'Beaming' Works

It's not Star Trek teleportation, but "beaming" of a kind has taken a big leap forward. A project funded by the European Commission has demonstrated how a person can be transported to a remote location via the internet and feel physically immersed in that setting. During the beaming process, the visitor is embodied in a robot that translates movement and provides sensory feedback, allowing the person to have a remote "presence" in the new environment. Researchers imagine this technology will transform teleconferencing, medicine, entertainment, and even help military morale by giving deployed soldiers the sense of being home with their loved ones. More info, including a video report, at BBC News.
