Google Dreams of Smartphone Drones Hovering Your Presence into Meetings
Google has been granted a patent for a mobile telepresence system powered by H-shaped drones.
Many drones come with cameras, but Google thinks a drone with a projector could be the answer to mobile telepresence conferencing. Telepresence systems of the type sold by HP, Cisco, and Polycom may offer a more realistic virtual meeting space, but as Google notes, the right equipment needs to be at both ends, usually at a fixed location.
Google thinks it can get around this problem with the help of drones equipped with everything that a telepresence system features, including cameras, microphones, projectors, speakers, and a display. The company notes that a remotely-controlled robot can deliver a mobile telepresence experience but argues that robots can’t, for example, climb stairs: they’re clumsy and energy-guzzlers. However, its unmanned quadcopter however could provide “significant improvements” in speed, maneuverability, energy consumption, and facilitate access to cramped spaces.
