Futuristic Telepresence for Classrooms

On occasion I have speculated on if you absolutely HAVE to have teachers for learning to take place.  Obviously, there are some strong opinions on that point.

A related issue is do we have to get the kids together physically to learn?  Distance learning is looked on by some teachers as useful for some topics but not as good as being there in person.  Well, here is a video of a really amazing telepresence technology.  Now try for a moment to ignore the price of it.  Just look at what is possible.  This sort of technology will become much less expensive in the next decade.

Advanced telepresence. The really cool part happens in the second half.
