Google could use drones to transform the world of video conferencing by projecting virtual images of participants into the rooms.

A new patent awarded states that there would be “an image output device coupled to the frame” of the drone.

This could see faces being projected in meetings and would bring a revolution to a format often beset by technical issues.

The small quadcopter-shaped drone Google proposes to use would connect to the internet via a mobile device and include a tiny screen which would project virtual images.
