Your Avatar Becoming You

TEI/IET Mobility Newsletter

Montreal, QC (Sept. 23, 2014) – Communication between one person and another took place face-to-face until the advent of the written word. Writing established itself, and then centuries passed without any further seismic changes. But suddenly, in just a century or so, the advances of the telegraph, telephone, and (more lately) internet-based communications have ushered us into the connected world.

But most communications still lack the personal in-person touch.

Explore in this newsletter how newer technologies are starting to bridge this next frontier in interpersonal communications.

Also mentioned in this issue are items from driverless race cars to time wasted in traffic, from a possible evolution of the auto manufacturers to mobility services providers, the sharing boom, and drones.
