3-D Design Offers Innovative Approaches to Virtual Teaming


First with British Telecom and now with Hutchison3G, British 3-D designer Andrew McGrath has participated in the research and development of innovative tools to address the communication needs of dispersed teams.

McGrath's work uncovered the need for solutions in two key areas: meeting spaces, graphically enhanced audio conferencing, and contact spaces, on-line areas that simulate the unplanned and unpredictable communications that occur in shared spaces. The innovations of McGrath and his colleagues go beyond shared applications, whiteboards, and video "talking heads"; they’re working toward a complete solution for virtual teams.
