Interfaces for computing devices have evolved very little in 30 years What comes next?
The Intel® RealSense™ SDK Free Tools and APIs for building natural user interfaces. Public Beta for Windows available Q3 2014 • Accessible for beginners. Open and extensible for experts. • Support for Windows 8.1 today. Android support coming. • Reach a broad-base of customers by writing apps for the Intel RealSense 3D Camera. • Stand out in a crowded market. Delight your customers. • Works with languages, frameworks, and game engines you already use
The Intel® RealSense™ SDK understands 4 basic types of inputUse standalone or in combination Hands Face Speech Environment
120 cm Intel® RealSense™ 3D Camera for Windows: Designed for close-range interactions Intel®RealSense™ 3D camera 20 cm Competitive technologies focus on a living-room experience or a sub-set of Intel RealSense technology features

What Kinds of Applications can Intel® RealSense™ Technology Enable? Innovate on top of our application categories. YOU will come up with the next big thing Capture and Share Immersive Collaboration/Creation Interact Naturally Gaming and Play Learning andEdutainment
Immersive Collaboration/Creation • Via the 3D camera, software can “segment” an environment, allowing an app to remove the background • With the background removed, developers can create applications ideal for a combination of video chat and collaboration • Make apps that allow presenters to be overlaid on top of applications, allow two people to share an experience on the web, or for a single person to use this “digital green screen” to create compelling original content
Interact Naturally • Use our extensive library of gestures, facial analysis algorithms, and speech recognition algorithms to build interfaces that are truly natural • Leverage our carefully developed user-experience guidelines document to ensure the interfaces you build will delight your customers
Gaming and Play • Differentiate your game with gesture, speech, augmented reality enhanced with depth, facial analysis, and more • Use the user’s pulse to determine the stability of a scope. Allow a user to physically move their head to peak around a corner. Use gesture for a lock-picking challenge. The possibilities are endless
Capture and Share • Partnership with scanning/printing experts, 3D Systems* • Rotate a small object in front of the 3D camera to create a 3D mesh + color • Developers can import scans from a proprietary 3DS* app or eventually build scanning into their own application • The model is scan, edit, share. Upload scans to social media, or sent to a 3D printer. * Other names and brands may be claimed as the property of others
Learning and Edutainment • Use augmented reality, powered by Metaio to track 2D or 3D objects and incorporate them into a learning experience • Tracking is significantly improved by the 3D camera. Enjoy both enhanced precision and accuracy • Interact with stories using both facial/emotion recognition and gesture. Disguise learning as play.
SDK Supported Features * Other names and brands may be claimed as the property of others
Unity* Productivity Extension • A set of scripts that provides configurable actions/rules based on the capabilities provided in the SDK. • Programming: Associate your game objects with the action scripts. • Programming: Create rules. Associate your game objects with rules. Drag and drop programming Write less code! 19 * Other names and brands may be claimed as the property of others
