The See Me in 3-D webisode was developed by the National Defense Education Program LabTV.

Abstract: Scientists are developing a 3-D teleconference system so that people can make a phone call and see someone as though they were really there. A live 3-D scanning system is connected to a 3-D projector system so that people’s faces can be scanned, transmitted, and displayed very quickly. The display uses a rotating mirror that reflects a slightly different image to the recipient’s left and right eyes, thus creating the illusion of 3-D.

Using mirrors to reflect images, 3-D video images are given the illusion of movement through a high-speed video projector. A live 3-D scanner system is hooked up to a live 3-D display system to allow a person's image to be projected through space in real time. Scientists call this 3-D teleconferencing. This technology was inspired by the holograms in the Star Wars movies. People will be beaming up, down, and all around telespace.
