Teleporting in an X Window System Environment

Richardson, Tristan, Bennett, Frazer, Mapp, Glenford E. ORCID logoORCID: and Hopper, Andy (1994) Teleporting in an X Window System Environment. IEEE Personal Communications, 1 (3) . pp. 6-12. ISSN 1070-9916 [Article] (doi:10.1109/MPC.1994.311827)


Teleporting is the ability to redirect a windowing environment to different computer displays. This paper describes the implementation of a teleporting system developed at Olivetti Research Laboratory (ORL). We outline two particular features of the system that make it powerful. First, it operates with existing applications, which will run without any modification. Second, it incorporates sophisticated techniques of personnel and equipment location which make it simple to use. Teleporting may represent a development in attempts to achieve a ubiquitous, personalised computing environment for all.
