Razer has announced it will be working with Intel to deliver a consumer-ready desktop and VR-enabled camera based on Intel RealSense technology.
RealSense Technology has been incorporated into the new Razer design so users can enjoy a significantly enhanced game broadcasting and VR enabled gaming features. Users will be able to automatically remove backgrounds, allowing both streamers and video conferencing users to replace the background for a more entertaining and visually immersive experience for viewers. The Intel RealSense is also capable of 3D scanning, motion and gesture recognition, which allows product designers to bring objects and bodies into a virtual space. Even more features and related applications are anticipated to be announced for the Intel RealSense camera before release.
“Razer is excited to be working with Intel, using Intel RealSense technology to help pioneer work for game broadcasting, as well as with VR, with support from the growing OSVR [Open Source Virtual Reality] movement,” said Min-Liang Tan, co-founder and CEO of Razer. “Gamers will, we expect, be able to enhance their broadcasting and VR experience in unprecedented ways.”
“This is a great opportunity to make Intel RealSense technology easily accessible to the gaming and VR communities. 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.” Dr. Achin Bhowmik, general manager of Perceptual Computing.
During the Intel Developer Forum currently being held in San Francisco, Intel and Razer will be teaming up to showcase broadcasting and OSVR demos using Intel RealSense technology. The demos available will include Virtual Reality and Augmented Reality applications running on PCs.
