Yesterday, after the Telstra “social communications roundtable”, a few of us were treated to a live demo of a Cisco Telepresence unit Telstra have installed at their offices.

This photo (and the others here) don’t do it justice, but basically you have a half a boardroom table up against a wall which has three large flat screen panels which carry the images of the people sitting on the other side of the call. It’s designed so you would swear they are sitting on the other side of the table. It’s truly amazing. I want one in my home.
