Intel unveils RealSense hardware and software line, including 3D camera module

         

The takeaway at today’s Intel press event? At this early stage (you know, before the event actually starts), all signs point to the RealSense product line – a number of hardware and software products that “make interaction with technology simple, more natural and immersive,” according Intel’s own words. The first product bearing the compound name is the RealSense 3D camera. Intel describes the product as, “the world’s first integrated 3D depth and 2D camera module that helps devices ‘see’ depth much like the human eye.”

The camera does full-color 1080p and on-board sensing for gesture and face detection, the latter of which apparently helps it “understand emotions.” It also recognizes foregrounds and backgrounds, can 3D scan and can make augmented reality that much better. The RealSense 3D camera is set to be integrated into a number of diverse devices, including tablets, ultrabooks, notebooks and All in ones, from top companies like Acer, Asus, Dell, Fujitsu, HP, Lenovo and NEC come the second half of this year.

We’ll apparently be seeing seven such devices demoed today, from Dell, Lenovo and Asus.
