With the rapid changes in technology over the last decade it has started to feel like we live in the future and now even more so with the advent of Intel® RealSense™ Technology in commercially available products. Imagine being able to control your device with natural hand movements or being able to get life-sized measurements from a photo. With Intel® RealSense™ Technology you don’t have to imagine, you can just do it!
So how does it work?
Devices sporting the Intel® RealSense™ 3D camera have three lenses: a conventional camera, an infrared camera, and an infrared laser projector. The lenses work together to allow the device to “sense” depth by detecting the infrared light bouncing off objects in front of it. The device then takes the visual data and in combination with innovative motion-tracking software is able to create a touch-free interface that responds to hand, arm, and head motions as well as facial expressions.So what can you do with the Intel® RealSense™ Technology found in the latest and greatest devices out there? Read on to find out!
1) Control Your Device With Natural Gestures
Imagine being able to interact with your computer as you would with people through facial expressions and natural gestures? Intel® RealSense™ 3D camera has made this a reality as it sees and processes more like we do, enabling it to respond to natural movement in three dimensions. Forget your mouse and touchscreens, controlling your device can be as simple as a wave! This is an especially exciting feature for gamers as it will allow them to play using head, hand and finger movements to play.
