Intel RealSense™ Technology Brings Human-like Senses to Devices

Intel® RealSense™ Technology was introduced in 2014 with short-range 3D depth cameras for notebooks and All-in-One desktops. Continuing the innovation, Intel announced RealSense™ Camera R200, a long-range depth camera for 2-in-1s and tablets at CES 2016.
With that, Intel also announced the RealSense™ Camera ZR300, an integrated unit within the Intel® RealSense™ Smartphone Developer Kit.
Sanjay Vora, vice president in the Client Computing Group and general manager of User Experiences at Intel Corporation stated via a blog post:
"Both new additions to the RealSense family of depth-sensing cameras greatly expands on the universe of applications and use cases for mobile devices – PCs, tablets and phones. Moreover, the short-range Intel® RealSense™ Camera F200 continues to experience strong momentum with integration into more than 25 OEM systems in multiple form factors."

It is integrated into 6th Generation Intel® Core™ platforms and is a camera module integrated into the back of 2-in-1 detachable PCs and tablets. This would allow people to experience:
3D scanning: Easily scan people and objects in 3D to share on social media or print on a 3D printer.
Immersive Gaming: Scan oneself into a game and be the character in top-rated games like Grand Theft Auto. That would be exciting, right? 
Improved Photography/Video: Create live video with depth enabled special effects. Also, it would enable users to enhance the focus and color of photographs.
