In episode 5 there is a woman, who have to withdraw from a conversation, because she becomes aware that a conference is about to start and she wants
to participate to it -- so she taps the air before her and starts seamingly voiceless chatting (*) with other (virtual) conference members. That is
one of the perfect examples of why such a system would make sense and be very useful, even when others next to her (the real ones, not the virtual
ones), felt it a bit odd that she stopped paying attention to them and looked like she was just sitting there doing nothing.
(*) Or atleast a man says, a few moments later, that "she'll be chatting for atleast ten minutes", even when that same woman later talks aloud with
someone, who she is currently connected to.
Anyway, I believe that there will be a lot more suggestive usage cases later in the series. Would I use such. if it were really available? Sure, I'd
like to be an early adaptor for such.
