Windows 10 has a feature that can unlock a computer with a face in lieu of a password. The so called Windows Hello takes advantage of Intel’s RealSense camera and technology. Today, Intel is releasing a smartphone developer kit that has RealSense cameras, and also support for Google’s Project Tango…
The developer kit costs $399 and features a 6-inch 2560 x 1440 display, Intel Atom X7-Z8700 chip, 2GB of RAM, and 64GB of storage. The ZR300 RealSense Camera setup consists of depth and wide field of view cameras that work together with an accelerometer and gyroscope for motion and feature tracking. The device runs Android and supports the RealSense and Project Tango SDK. The latter can be used for 3D motion and feature tracking, depth sensing, indoor navigation, and area learning.
The device was first seen at last year’s Google I/O to demo several Project Tango experiences and games. At this moment, developers in the US can reserve a developer kit for shipment at a later time. For developers who want to try Project Tango more immediately, the Google Store sells a tablet dev kit for $512.
