VIDEO: ACME - Augmented Collaboration in Mixed Environments

While we have seen many of these technologies elsewhere, this is one COOOOL example of them all.. Good work.

Augmented Collaboration in Mixed Environments (ACME) is a mixed reality teleconferencing application based on Second Life (SL) and the OpenSim virtual worlds. Augmented Reality techniques are used for displaying virtual avatars of remote meeting participants in real physical spaces, while Augmented Virtuality, in form of video based gesture detection, enables capturing of human expressions to control avatars and to manipulate virtual objects in virtual worlds.
