Now this is a great use of technology and high definition. We wish that we had more info on this but all we have are a few pics and our dreams. Akihabara News is at trade show and Epson is showing off their newest innovation: HD video conferencing. From the looks of the two pics we have, there seems to be a camera on top of the HDTV (50-inch plasma maybe). The HDTV is displaying three pictures and two of them seem to be from the trade shows floor, with the third, at some office.

We image the data connection required to do this is something that we Americans can only dream about though. Or be President Logan of 24 'cause he has used stuff like this early on in the season. But WOW, hopefully Akihabara News puts up a HD video of this in action.
