Bringing offices together -- teleport

30 May 2016

This was an idea that Ted threw at me last year – a zero-friction means of starting a face-to-face video conference on an ad-hoc basis.

I’ve put together a [web page][], that contains links to a number of Google Hangouts (created on demand).

The zero-friction part is the conference carts, a Google Chromebox that boots into ChromeOS, once you log in, you’re presented with a Chrome browser that loads up the page and is displayed on a monitor with a touch screen overlay. Joining a meeting is a matter of touching the agreed-upon meeting room.
