Intel outlines plans for RealSense range during CES keynote address

Intel has outlined its latest developments and plans for 2014 in a keynote address at the International Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas, US.

One notable innovation is a new family of hardware and software products called Intel RealSense technology.

RealSense aims to simplify interaction with technology and make for a more natural and immersive user experience.

In collaboration with other companies including Microsoft, Intel will bring human-like senses to a range of Intel-based devices, including 2-in-1s, tablets, ultrabooks, notebooks and all-in-ones.

“For decades, people have had to learn new languages, techniques and commands to get our devices to do what we want,” said Mooly Eden, senior vice president, general manager of the Perceptual Computing Group, Intel. “Our vision with Intel RealSense technology is to reverse that, and make our devices learn and understand us. By equipping them with technologies that mimic human senses in a more genuine way, our everyday experiences such as learning, communication and gaming are transformed; and entirely new ones are possible.”

One of the first products to be released from the RealSense range is the Intel RealSense 3D camera, which uses integrated 3D depth and a 2D camera module to allow devices to experience depth much in the same way the human eye does.

To demonstrate the video calling and conferencing possibilities that Intel RealSense 3D camera brings, Intel and Microsoft have collaborated to deliver more immersive video calls than ever before on both Skype and Lync.
