Computer Scientists working on 3D Model Projection

Current teledildonics technology simply seeks to replicate a specific part of a person. Up until recently, these parts were only made to vibrate, a feat which very few people can pull off in real life. We're now to the point of having toys that thrust, and dolls that gyrate, but why don't we just skip all that and create real, physical models of ourselves to project across the internet?

That's just what two Computer Scientists from Carnegie Mellon are doing. Cameras will capture the state of a room, which can then be recreated using specialized self-organizing "molecules" to create an exact kinetic model in a remote location. Obviously, having this in homes is still a couple of months (or more likely decades) away, but it's still a neat endeavor.
