Abstract:


    TWISTER (Telexistence Wide-angle Immersive STERe-oscope) is an immersive full-color autostereoscopic display, designed for a face-to-face telecommunication system called “mutual telexistence”, where people in distant locations can communicate as if they were in the same virtual three dimensional space.
