I read about this in the Guesswork blog: a lovely device called The Giraffe from HeadThere promises to take me off the wall in the conference room and into the realm of wandering around. This thing is really disturbing on many levels -- it reduces you to something even stranger than you already are in the 2-D world of videoconferencing.
It's like being the Magic Mirror in Snow White, or the lovely and vivacious (disembodied) head of Kitty Carlyle. I could sneak up behind people and yell boo, causing great consternation in the land. My co-workers could accessorize it with humiliating hats, antennae, or other costuming, making me an unwitting laughing-stock.
I'm not sure I need this or want this. And yet I'm strangely compelled.
