Abstract: When designing systems that support remote instruction on physical tasks in the real world, one must consider four requirements- 1) participants must be able to take appropriate positions, 2) they must be able to see and show gestures, 3) they must be able to organize the arrangement of bodies and tools and gestural expression sequentially and interactively 4) the instructor must be able to give instructions to more than one operator at a time GestureLaser and GestureLaser Car are systems we have developed in an attempt to satisfy these requirements GestureLaser is a remote controlled laser pointer that allows an instructor to show gestural expressions referring to real world objects from a distance GestureLaser Car is a remote controlled vehicle on which the GestureLaser can be mounted. Experiments with this combination indicate that it satisfies the four requirements reasonably well and can be used effectively to give remote instruction. Following the comparison of the GestureLaser system with existing systems, some implications to the design of embodied spaces are described
