RealSense 3D Computing
Devices with an Intel® RealSense™ 3D camera have three lenses: a conventional camera, an infrared camera, and an infrared laser projector. Together, the three lenses allow the device to infer depth by detecting infrared light that has bounced back from objects in front of it. This visual data, taken in combination with Intel RealSense motion-tracking software, create a touch-free interface that responds to hand, arm, and head motions as well as facial expressions.

Jan 15, 2015: from Intel Corporation (INTC) CEO Brian Krzanich on Q4 2014 Results
We recently launched RealSense 3D camera technologies and other examples extending our IP. ??We don’t sense?? as redefining imagining in a variety of computing devices. It’s also making its way to all sorts of new and unanticipated applications, highlighting the value of taking outside-in view, investing ahead of churn and shaping nascent technology.

This week at CES Intel provided more details on Intel RealSense Technology and system availability, as well as a glimpse of what’s possible.
Join the Intel RealSense technology group for a bite-size tour of the Intel booth, one RealSense demo at a time.
A complete guided tour of the 110ft long tunnel packed with RealSense cameras on the Intel booth.
Device manufacturers including Acer, Asus, Dell, Fujitsu, HP, Lenovo, and NEC are delivering systems spanning tablets, 2 in 1s, notebooks and All-in-One desktops with Intel RealSense 3D cameras.
Intel RealSense Snapshot is a first-of-its-kind [most basic] solution that takes photography to another dimension with multi-camera, depth-enabled Intel® Atom™ processor-based tablets. It was demonstrated during Intel’s CES 2015 keynote on “world’s thinnest tablet, Dell Venue 8 7000” which was launched in January 2015 for $399 and also won the Best of CES for Innovation 2015 award. Capturing a high-definition depth map optimized for photography along with your full-resolution image, you can change focus and take measurements with a touch of a finger, add dynamic effects and motion, and discover things in your photos you never thought were there! The keynote demo shows depth based real-time refocus as well as depth based colour filtering effects.
This is a Jan 4 video from the CNET’s coverage of CES 2015 “liked” by Intel® RealSense™ YouTube channel. In more general terms the Intel RealSense 3D camera for PCs is redefining how you control your devices, and enables new ways to interact in gaming, entertainment, collaboration, and content creation. Featuring full 1080p color and a world-class depth sensor, the world’s first and smallest integrated 3D camera delivers real-time depth sensing for all-in-one PCs, laptops, and 2 in 1s that is so precise it enables truly natural and immersive interaction.
Intel has also worked with over 65 developers who are building apps specifically for Intel RealSense technology. Demos during Intel CEO Brian Krzanich’s keynote showed what else is possible now and in the future, from wearable technology to help the vision-impaired to autonomous drones. Get more information.
Jan 6, 2015: A glimpse of what’s possible with Intel RealSense Technology from the detailed Intel® RealSense™ Technology and Software at CES 2015 post on the Intel® Developer Zone
In his CES keynote, Intel CEO Brian Krzanich highlighted a number of ways Intel RealSense technology is bringing cutting-edge computer/human interactions to the marketplace.
Food Network with Intel RealSense 3D Camera: Intel and Food Network have collaborated to create a cooking application that uses Intel RealSense technology to eliminate the need to touch the device and instead use gesture control and voice commands on an Intel RealSense 3D camera enabled device for easy scrolling through the application and navigation of recipes in real time. This will be available in the Spring of 2015.
All-in-one PC with 3D Display Concept: Intel showcased a futuristic “3D I/O” technology that integrates Intel RealSense technology with a specialized glass screen to enable an immersive, hologram-like experience without the need for additional eyewear. It is available to experience in Intel’s CES booth.
Watch what happens at the 2015 CES Intel Keynote when 3D input, powered by Intel RealSense technology, is combined with 3D output, via our “floating display”. The results are right out of a science fiction film.
Intel RealSense 3D cameras can also provide intuitive, sight-based capabilities for solving complex problems in different application and devices.
Intel RealSense technology and wearables: Looking into the future, Krzanich also demonstrated a wearable technology research project that can help vision-impaired people navigate their environments more easily and safely. The wearable solution places sensors on clothing, equipped with Intel RealSense 3D cameras that sense the vicinity and trigger vibrations as a feedback mechanism, helping people to navigate their environment.
Intel RealSense technology inside Robotics and Multi-copter drone: Intel demonstrated an iRobot® AVA® 500 video collaboration robot equipped with Intel RealSense cameras to support the platform’s autonomous navigation and obstacle avoidance technologies.

In addition, Intel highlighted the growing possibilities for multi-copter drones, including the inspection of fields and power lines, delivering goods, and even monitoring endangered species. As these drones become smarter, they can see, react, and even move safely through the environment. During the CES keynote, Intel created a make-shift obstacle course inside the CES keynote ballroom and demonstrated a number of AscTec* Firefly multi-copter drones equipped with Intel RealSense cameras that provide 360-degree sensing and enabled with unique collision avoidance capabilities. Intel’s RealSense camera module, which weighs as little as 8 grams and is less than 4mm thick, brings depth perception to drones both indoors and outdoors with minimal impact to payload and flight times.
Watch as Brian Krzanich plays a game of “drone ping-pong” and showcases a “drone obstacle course”, featuring both AscTec’s self-navigating drones and Intel RealSense technology.
Krzanich demonstrated a range of capabilities that will be introduced in products by the end of the year, including True Key, a newly announced cross-platform application by Intel Security to address the hassle of passwords. The True Key application uses personal factors like the face, device or fingerprint to make logging in easier and safer. True Key is supported on iOS*, Android*, Windows*, Mac*, and across all your favorite browsers. It will also be preinstalled on devices from HP* and Lenovo* and a part of McAfee LiveSafe in the coming months. Visit www.truekey.com for access to the limited release of True Key.

He shows a multi-factor authentication system for a home security system, using a person’s phone, as well as facial recognition powered by Intel RealSense technology and Intel True Key, to allow a person to unlock a door.
As computing moves further into the third dimension, Krzanich welcomed Dion Weisler, executive vice president of HP’s printer and personal system’s business. Weisler discussed how HP is working to enable a blended reality ecosystem and announced that the Intel® Core™ i7 processor will power the company’s forthcoming HP Multi Jet Fusion technology, engineered to resolve critical gaps in speed, quality and cost. Weisler said the added performance and scale of Intel’s technology is critical to realize the full potential of 3-D printing.
