Intel® RealSense™ 3D Camera

Redefining how you control your devices, the Intel® RealSense™ 3D Camera enables new ways to interact in gaming, entertainment, and content creation. Featuring full 1080p color and a best-in-class depth sensor, the camera gives PCs and tablets 3D vision for new, immersive experiences. Interact more intuitively with facial recognition, emotion tracking, 3D scanning, and background extraction, or use 10-finger gesture recognition for agile device control.

New for 2014: Devices with integrated depth sensing

CES 2014 in Las Vegas saw the release of the world’s first integrated 3D depth and 2D camera module, enabling devices to “see” depth like human eyes. It will be built into mainstream Microsoft Windows* 8 and 8.1 devices, including Ultrabooks™, detachables, notebooks, 2 in 1s, and All-in-Ones (AIOs) from Acer, Asus, Dell, Fujitsu, HP, Lenovo, and NEC later in 2014.

Also announced were Intel collaborations with Autodesk, DreamWorks, metaio, Tencent, and others to bring innovative hardware and software products utilizing Intel RealSense technology to enhance depth-based computing experiences.


Enhanced conferencing

Enhanced video calling and conferencing

Intel and Microsoft are teaming up to transform video calls on Skype* and Lync* into personable interactions, enabling a more immersive virtual meeting. Show the caller in their native setting, move them to a new background, or remove the background entirely to collaborate on a presentation, review a movie, or watch a sporting event together.

Interactive learning

Educational entertainment

Children become active students in game-based learning with gesture, voice, and touch recognition. Scholastic is collaborating with Intel to design interactive learning tools with Clifford the Big Red Dog*. Depth-optimized software enables children ages three and up to engage via arm and hand motions to boost tomorrow’s core literacy and learning skills.

3D Capture

With help from 3D Systems, Intel is bringing 3D scanning, editing, and printing to mainstream computing. Do-it-yourself (DIY) software apps will enable students, hobbyists, and makers to easily and affordably create almost anything. Additionally, scanning technology will also become available to developers as part of the Intel RealSense technology software development kit.
