Despite being chosen as a bridesmaid, Rene wasn't able to make the trip to Colorado for her friend Jamie's wedding. Thanks to technology, she was still able to take part in the big day in more than just spirit -- by virtually attending the nuptials via iPad.

Rene's face was projected onto the screen of an iPad, and the device also allowed her to see and hear what was going on during the ceremony. The bride and her friend were thrilled -- not so much the poor groomsman who was forced to walk a tablet computer down the aisle.
