You might heard of Intel’s Perceptual Computing before which aims to build technology that would help users to have natural and more immersive interaction with computers through not only touch interface but also through hand gestures, voice and video. The effort has since resulted in a new line of hardware and software family that Intel dubbed as RealSense technology which was announced at its CES 2014 press conference earlier today.
The first product that will be released under the new Intel RealSense series is an embedded 3D camera which features a depth sensor that was claimed as the best in its class together with a full 1080p colour camera. The company stated that this new Intel RealSense 3D camera will be integrated into various types of Intel-based products in the market very soon such as 2-in-1 devices, tablets, Ultrabook, notebook and All-In-One PCs.
Furthermore, Intel also pointed out that users will be able to see such products in the second half of the year from manufacturers such as Acer, ASUS, Dell, Fujitsu, HP, Lenovo and NEC. At the same time, the chip maker have also listed down several other partners that will also help them delivering the RealSense technology to the market such as Microsoft (through Skype and Lync), Scholastic, 3D Systems, Tencent, Nuance, Autodesk and many more.
Frankly speaking, this particular announcement is not exactly new to us since Intel have been talking about integrating Perceptual Computing into devices for quite some time. Just that the technology now finally has a brand name for itself and will be heading into the market later this year.
