Just re: telepresence, this should exist:

"Let's do lunch" would be a chain of cafe/restaurants in major cities.
You go there to have remote business lunches. The tables have a large
teleconferencing setup at one end. You and a business associate in
another city would book tables in your respective cities, turn up and
you both see each other in real time, more or less as though you are
seated at the same table. You have lunch, chat. Maybe there's a
dedicated fax-type machine, where you can put a document in and it
pops out the other side. Maybe you can draw on the screen and the
person at the other end can see it. etc...
