Ah, video chatting. The staple of modern communication. But let’s face it, it’s always felt a bit lacking. I mean, sure, you can see and hear the person on the other end, but it’s not like you’re in the same room as them, right? Wrong! Google’s Project Starline is here to change all that!
After two years of tinkering away, Google has unveiled a sleek new version of Project Starline that takes up less space and doesn’t require any of those pesky infrared light emitters or unique cameras. Regular cameras will do just fine, thank you very much! And the new design means that Project Starline can now fit in your living room or conference room without being a big ol’ hindrance.
But that’s not all! Google tested Project Starline with companies like Salesforce, T-Mobile, and WeWork, and the results were pretty darn promising. People felt like they were building stronger personal connections, they were less fatigued in meetings, and they were more attentive. Talk about a win-win-win!
Google’s original goal with Project Starline was to make it feel like you’re actually in the same room as the person you’re chatting with, and they’ve gone all-out to make that happen. Multiple depth sensors and a light field display system combine with spatial audio and real-time compression to create a truly seamless experience.
And that’s not even half of it! At Google’s recent I/O 2023 event, they showed off all kinds of cool new AI tech and even launched some highly-anticipated devices. From natural language processing to brand-new smartphones, they covered it all.
So, there you have it, folks. Project Starline is the future of video chatting, and it’s looking pretty bright. With its photorealistic models and immersive experience, you’ll feel like you’re right there with the person you’re chatting with. So say goodbye to boring old video chats and hello to the future!
