World Center For Arts, Cultures &
Technology http://johnmarkscientistpolymath.blogspot.com/2008/12/world-center-for-arts-cultures.html 

A complete 3D reconstruction of each person in tele-immersion will be
presented at each and every pavilion theme according to each civilization,
or nationality at various locations in the world by using multi telepresence
cameras that take rapid, sequential shots of the same object, continuously
performing distance calculations, and projecting them into high-end,
computer-simulated environment to replicate real-time images and movement.
As a result, visitors and audiences at The World Center for Arts, Cultures &
Technology will be able to physically shake hands with Christopher Columbus,
Winston Churchil, Copernicus, Goethe or whomever they like depending on
whatever they select for their cultural insights from the Center's
super-computer database.
