This video paper describes the practical outcome of the first milestone of a project aiming at setting up a socalled Hybrid Team that can accomplish a wide variety of different tasks. In general, the aim is to realize and examine the collaboration of augmented humans with autonomous robots, virtual characters and SoftBots (purely software based agents) working together in a Hybrid Team to accomplish common tasks.
