    Not in the UK, they've gone TeamViewer here.

    It's a peculiar form factor for sure.

    To be fair - sending a telegraph is almost better than trying to use Skype

    I remember about 10 years ago a lot of people thought that the game Second Life would be viable for this.

    Oh man. I actually came seriously close to leaving my first REAL job in Architecture, over that crap. The principals were eating that **** up, and during our quarterly stakeholders meeting they were like *were going to pivot to making 3d models for Second Life, instead of doing architecture!" I was the only person who said something, and i was like (25ish, had no filter) "If that happens, im out."

    They were genuinely surprised i said i would leave. They couldnt understand that what i wanted to do was make BUILDINGS, not 3D models.

    ...and whilst I "get" the former sport 360/wide-angle viewing, multi-mic. zoom/focus and all that jazz, I'm struggling to see how the latter aren't the better option for us - presently anyway (this'll be going in 4.5x2.8m room, 55" screen on the short wall, long table running down the middle)
    Thank for your share. it is very useful for me.
