The benefits of video conferencing are obvious e.g. no travel-time, no administrative planning, no restraints on the environment and so on. However, there is still a distance that not easily can be over-bridged and it still works like an advanced phone call with many people at the same time. The solution to this according to the Silicon Valley-based startup Spatial is augmented reality. Where their solution is a new form of visualisation that not only includes realistic 3D avatars that are teleported to all participants at the conference or remote work team. But also the working space is extended to the space around your smartphone or computer. See video below:
