Imagine having a skype call. Only, you can now shake hands with the person at the other end of the word after your interview. Or pinch your friend back in your native country. Kiss your girlfriend when she is away. I have always thought that would change relationships in a way we can't possibly understand right now, plus it would make distances effectively disappear. Simply too large a thought to handle.
Well, we're not quite there. Yet, with MIT now having reached this stage, we are now a step closer. Watch and marvel.
Looking forward to the next step. So exciting to be living all this technology!
