Interesting novel approach to video conferencing and remote collaboration: 'Facetop' Blends Screen and Video Images (via Nova Spivack). Suppose the overlaid image was software rendered, instead of just being a video stream of the remote collaborator? Seems like an interesting paradigm for game UI's, and for certain human-agent interaction scenarios. Computer-assisted education seems an obvious one, but I can imagine other human-agent collaborations that would be possible, if the objects on the shared desktop had enough meta-data attached to them.
