Mini Avatars

Browsing feeds today, I see that Microsoft are working to develop their own version of BitTorrent, with a codename of Avalanche. This appears to be currently a research project, with no immediate plans to commercialise it.

The other interesting story was internet ‘Teleporting’, where cameras would capture the motion at one end of the connections and material at the other end would arrange itself to provide a 3D likeness of the object, allowing a better representaiton of talking to the other person.

So I was wondering what happens if you put these two together? Will you get lots of little 3D models that will grow bigger. Will each one only get a little bit of the message and they have to all be combined.

It’s late. It’ Friday. It’s been a hard week and my brain is acting funny. Roll on the weekend.
