BEAMING is the process of instantaneously transporting people (visitors) from one physical place in the world to another (the destination) so that they can interact with the local people there. BEAMING (Being in Augmented Multi-Modal Naturally-Networked Gatherings) is a four year FP7 EU collaborative project (#248620) which started on Jan 1st 2010.
This Integrated Project will undertake a Research Programme that has as its major goal the delivery of presence in wide area distributed mixed reality environments. PRESENCCIA is an EU funded Integrated Project under the IST programme (Project Number 27731)
