Intel pushes RealSense to offset PC decline

Will enable developers to create new depth sensing hardware and software.

By CBR Staff Writer

Intel has released the RealSense technology OS X operating system, along with Android and Windows OS.

The chipmaker has been trying to push RealSense, a system of cameras, software and sensors that can enhance the capability of a laptop by adding new functions like voice recognition, and 3D scanning.

Intel said that it is venturing into mobile depth sensing by blending Project Tango and Intel RealSense technologies into an Android Smartphone developer kit.

The Intel RealSense Smartphone featuring Google’s Project Tango will provide indoor navigation and area learning, virtual reality gaming, 3D scanning and more.

Intel is reportedly looking to offset the impact of declining PC market, and looking to push more of its chips into other devices. The company is also reportedly trying to convince computer makers to alter their products so they act less like office equipment and more like the smartphones that are popular amongst consumers.

The Intel Developer Forum (IDF) CEO Brian Krzanich recently demonstrated several technologies including Razer, Twitch, XSplit, opentrack and an N&W vending machine and mechanical spiders with Intel RealSense technology.

Krzanich said: "Computers are on our desks, in our bags, in our clothes, in our homes and on our bodies.
