Telepresence research that brings the experience, which people in different places feel like they are interacting in a same place, into reality is advanced. In this paper, we propose "Surreal Telepresence" that brings telecommunication with the psychological effects which aren't provided in face to face situation into reality. And we indicate three ideas of Surreal Telepresence: control of the psychological effects of Social Touch, control of the directivity of eye-gaze, and Proxemics based control of the interpersonal distance between the operator and the local user. At the end of this paper, we describe the challenges for the future, the envisioned applications of Surreal Telepresence, and the future work.
