Our world now is becoming a connected village of information and social experiences, but we still experience it as spectators and from the personal point of view. Telexistence Toolkit, or TxKit, is a compact, novel communication device that virtually transports you from one physical location to another, allowing you to experience the world from your point of view. Designed based on essential sensory feedback and in humanoid factor, TxKit provides the means for stereoscopic vision, binaural audio, speaking, and head motion. Using this design, both user and remote participants can have natural and mutual communication as if both were in the same location.
