'Facetop' Blends Screen and Video Images

Some UNC researchers have found a really great use for the transparency in the OS X interface. Facetop lets you see a more or less ghostly image of the person you are collaborating with superimposed on the screen. You can see what the person is pointing at, for instance. A Mac version could be ready in a couple of months, but there apparently can't be a Windows version until Longhorn.

That's very cool, Eric. Nice find.

PS - A business case for 25" flatscreens?

Hi, Jason Smith, one of the co-inventors here...

Facetop actually does quite a bit more than simply let you see the other person. Here's a FAQ that explains it more clearly.

Thanks for the plug! :)
