"Open Office Frontier," which is the corporate vision of Fuji Xerox, aims to enrich communication and collaboration between globally scattered companies. The LightCollabo team works on facilitating remote collaboration involving physical objects, which is common among industrial companies. LightCollabo enables an operator at a distant location to view real objects and to project annotations on the objects.
