“ExLeap,” a minimal telepresence system that creates a leaping experience. Multiple “nodes,” consisting of 360 degree camera, microphone and speaker, placed in a room lively transmit video and sound to a remote client. On the client, videos are rendered in 3D space, and a remote user may choose to join a node, freely switch and move onto different positions in the room.
T-Leap is an integrated one-to-many wearable telepresence system that makes use of a 360-degree camera. With this system, we carried out a field study with three scenarios to observe participants using T-Leap to connect remotely (with the Viewer staying indoors, and the Nodes exploring outdoors) in situations where there exist linguistic and geographical barriers.
