New camera technology from Intel for laptops and others

Category: Technology


Smartphones carry advanced cameras with new technologies while laptops and other devices struggling and lagging behind. Now the void is fulfilled with Intel’s RealSense 3D camera installed on laptops and others. It uses two depth sensors in addition to a standard lens. This creates a 3D effect and the technology allows removal of the background without a green screen. Picture and gestures are more accurate and allow of 3D scan of real objects. Intel’s standalone RealSense 3D F200 can be connected to a PC using USB3 port. There are other technical requirements for connecting the camera to a PC too.

The gesture-based technology consists of series of consumer 3D cameras. It consists of several components including a color camera, depth camera with IR light source and microphone array. The technology allows face recognition and tracking, hand and other object tracking, and voice recognition.

Recent laptops and tablets from several manufacturers including Dell, Acer, HP, Asus and Lenovo are already using the technology and many more will follow soon. Natural user interface technology is used in Kinect, Leap, HoloLenses and many other products. Many expect the technology to migrate into all-in-one devices within the year.
