    RealSense by Intel

    RealSense is the new generation of 3D camera that will soon be included in the Windows notebooks, 2 in 1s, and All-in-Ones (AIOs) from Acer, Asus, Dell, Fujitsu, HP, Lenovo, and NEC. This new technology is based on three little cameras that enable the device to “see” depth like human eyes.
    So what about Kolor Eyes? You can now change your field of view using the RealSense cameras! Simply move your hand in front of the sensor and you’ll be able to choose the direction you want to look at and also zoom in/out.
