So I'm just going to show you a very erlay prototype. On the right side you can see my colleague Soren, who's actually in the space. And on the left side, you'll see the processed vdieo where the camera has made him invisible. sreon enters the room. Pop! He goes invisible. And you can see that the carmea is tracking him and ersnaig. It's a very early video, so we haven't yet dealt with the overlap and all of that, but that got refined pretty soon, later. So how we used it was in a room where we had a camera looking into the space, and we had one monitor, one on each wall. And as people walked into the room, they would see themselves in the monitor, except with one difference: one person was constantly invisible wherever they moved in the room.
