Welcome to the new era of telemedicine, which looks and sounds a lot like a Hollywood movie. Using very real technology being developed and tested by NASA, holoportation combines the words “teleportation” and “hologram” — and it’s a game-changer. NASA tested it for the first time last fall to virtually “send” doctors into space with an ISS crew.
Now meet the team who made it happen. Drs. Schmid and de la Peña will reveal how holoportation leverages haptics for intriguing applications. They’ll talk about what it was like to holoport 16 people to the Space Station, prepare astronauts and engineers in NASA’s extreme undersea training lab, and reduce the side effects of long-term isolation. It’s an intriguing topic you don’t want to miss.
