Palsu is an interactive meeting tool that is used to demonstrate capabilities of VIE. The idea is to create a tool for coordinating both online and real-world meetings. This means being able to manage:
- Meeting scheduling
- Agenda for meetings
- Collaboratively written meeting notes
- Action points (tasks) that arise in the meeting
- Participants of the meeting, and action points assigned to them
Palsu comes from the Finnish word for a "meeting".
