HyperMirror Pictures

Thank you to Akio Yamanaka for taking pictures at the HyperMirror session at NECC and sending them to me. After the session, they opened the floor for attendees to come on camera and see what it is like. I wanted to try out the hand-clapping pattern for See See My Playmate.


First we demonstrated the pattern, as they girls in Japan hadn’t seen it before.

Here we are trying to line up our hands to “clap.”


Trying to get the timing right!

Almost have it! We only had a couple minutes. I think if we had more time to practice we could have done it.

Here is what it looked like from this end. I am facing the projector screen where I was seeing the same view as the pictures above.

See the big smiles on everyone’s faces. Clearly this technology helps us feel closer together!

Very cool. Thank you Akio for these pictures! I look forward to hearing about future projects with HyperMirror videoconferencing.

    Very neat. So this is the famed blue screen that weathermen use! I bet this was quite a challenge to coordinate clapping across the miles!
