Such sites and/or locations can be created in conventional Virtual Reality or Augmented Reality. Such a system does not always require networking since there is not always a need for transmission of data between remote sites. Other than the networking requirement, virtual presence needs the other features of telepresence in order to achieve the sense of presence [1]:The extent of the sensory information: it i ...
