Lync, Kinect & Perceptive Pixel–the future of telepresence?

With Microsoft acquiring Perceptive Pixel (www.perceptivepixel.com) the future of many of the things we see as leading edge just got very dark.

Why would you buy an interactive whiteboard knowing Microsoft is bringing Perceptive Pixel to play?  If you were in Education, Healtcare, Finance, Banking, Architecture, Fashion, Engineering or any one of a thousand other industries you’d be very focussed on Perceptive Pixel.

Combine this amazing device with the power of Kinect and Microsoft Lync, and you have the option of a fully interactive telepresence environment.  The opportunity to collaborate and share has never looked rosier.
