Google and Intel presented RealSense 3D smartphone with Project Tango Dev kit
At the Intel Developer Forum, was presented a rather interesting device that uses RealSense 3D technology of Intel and 3D mapping technology of Google’s Project Tango. Presented device, which looks like a fairly standard smartphone with a 6-inch QHD screen with 8.2 mm profile and weighing 165 grams, plus several cameras on the back. While this phone is strictly aimed at developers, it offers pretty good early look at what could potentially see in consumer phones later.
The smartphone comes with Android 5.0.1 Lollipop and works with Intel Atom X5 processor. On his back is a set of sensors and cameras that include RealSense R200 camera with fisheye lens and 8-megapixel sensor. There are also several RGB cameras, infrared cameras (providing “stereo matching”) and a laser emitter, in order to obtain the texture of the scanned objects.
Basically you can use the device to scan 3D objects and receive three-dimensional portraits of the environment in real time by simply moving the phone around. He was even able to map movements to trace and, of course, it gives great potential for playing games.
In one of the demos held device can create virtual walls and barriers on the real world – something like an enlarged Minecraft. In another demo using the sensor depth, in which the gamer is able to recreate the objects in the room and then throw balls at them. Demonstrated was a game called Tango Blaster, which allows you to play first-person shooter with a modified NERF gun. With it you can shoot enemies as usual, but thanks to tracking the movements of the phone and the technology for deep observation, you can search for cover by going behind the walls.http://gizbrain.com/2015/08/20/google-and-intel-presented-realsense-3d-smartphone-with-project-tango-dev-kit/https://i1.wp.com/gizbrain.com/wp-content/uploads/2015/08/Intel-Real-Sense-Project-Tango.jpg?fit=800%2C464https://i1.wp.com/gizbrain.com/wp-content/uploads/2015/08/Intel-Real-Sense-Project-Tango.jpg?fit=190%2C150GOOGLEINTELTECH NEWSAndroid 5.1,Android Lollipop,Google,Intel,smartphoneAt the Intel Developer Forum, was presented a rather interesting device that uses RealSense 3D technology of Intel and 3D mapping technology of Google's Project Tango.
