Taking Your Photography to the Next Level with Intel RealSense

Both amateur and professional photographers alike have something new to be ecstatic about! Last week at the Intel Developer Forum, CEO Brian Krzanich talked about Intel® RealSenseTM snapshot, an intelligent camera system for computing devices that captures depth information of the photo. The Dell Venue 8 7000 Series tablet will be the first tablet that has Intel RealSense snapshot and will be available in time for holiday season of this year.  In anticipation of this, let us share a couple of ways that Intel RealSense snapshot will enhance your photography experience on tablet and provide a sneak peak of other exciting features of Intel RealSense technology in the coming future.

Intel RealSense Snapshot

Intel RealSense snapshot will allow users to take multi-dimensional pictures, a feature that has not been built into tablets in the past, opening up new things that consumers can do now.  For example, have you ever been on vacation, taken a picture and later try to recall details from the trip to share with your friends? Imagine if you could go back to your pictures and check on the size and magnitude of objects such as your huge ocean view balcony, the height of a famous statue, or even the loftiness of the gnarly wave you surfed (or attempted to, at least). Whatever the case may be, Intel RealSense snapshot allows users to measure distances between points in any picture.

What’s more, for the photo editors out there, it will support multi-dimensional photography capabilities, including filtering or adjusting focus of your photo and editing your photos to perfection.  You can rediscover things that you didn’t notice when taking the photo.   And if you get “photobombed”, Intel RealSense snapshot can blur the “bomber” out of focus.

Dell Venue 8 7000 Series Tablet

Now, you may be asking, how do I go about getting my hands on this amazing camera?  Dell revealed the Dell Venue 8 7000 Series Tablet at the Intel Developer Forum, the world’s thinnest tablet and the first tablet that has Intel RealSense snapshot. The tablet is powered by the Intel® Atom™ Z3500 processor series, providing strong performance and a long battery life. The tablet has an 8.4-inch OLED display that has been highly praised for its accurate and vibrant presentation of colors and impressive resolution.

Paired together, the thinnest tablet in the world now houses a technologically advanced camera. The Dell Venue 8 7000 Series will be available on www.dell.com and in stores in November, just in time for the holiday season.

Intel RealSense 3D Camera

Think this is cool? There’s more to come. PCs, 2 in 1s and tablets will be introduced to a wide range of new possibilities with real-time depth sensing overtime with Intel RealSense 3D camera. This technology will intelligently sense your world through a lens, giving your device the ability to scan, interact, play games, augment reality, and enhance photo and real-time video in three dimensions in the future. Intel RealSense technology can also enable advanced facial detection and tracking, emotion detection, and even the tracking and detection of all twenty-two joints in the hand and all of their movements.   For more information visit www.intel.com/RealSense or www.facebook.com/IntelRealSense.

Intel is also working on the next wave of features for your everyday devices, such as removing wires from the charging experience and replacing traditional passwords with biometrics. While depth-enhanced cameras are just now becoming a household possibility, soon we may be wirelessly charging and free from the inconveniences of entering multiple passwords on our devices and accounts. What new technology do you hope is around the corner?
