Razer is teaming up with Intel to put out a consumer-ready desktop and VR-enabled camera for a wide range of applications.
Equipped with Intel RealSense technology, the new Razer design will provide the users with significantly-enhanced game broadcasting and VR gaming capabilities. Some of the new features will include automatic background removal (you can leave your room a mess while streaming!), 3D scanning, and motion and gesture recognition. They’ve got that down so far, and they’re planning to pack in a lot more into the Intel RealSense technology-enabled Razer device.
Intel and Razer showcased multiple broadcasting and OSVR demos using Intel RealSense technology at the Intel Developer Forum 2015 held in San Francisco. They used a modified OSVR Hacker Dev Kit by Razer and computers using Intel processors.
It seems that both Razer and Intel are excited for this collaboration, with Razer CEO Min-Liang Tan expecting that gamers will “be able to enhance their broadcasting and VR experience in unprecedented ways.” Dr. Achin Bhowmik, general manager of Perceptual Computing, says of the project: “We are proud of the beautiful design of Razer’s Intel RealSense Camera peripheral and we look forward to enabling innovation in the gaming world together.” If these folks keep at it, gaming’s going to become a much more immersive experience.
