Intel launches RealSense technology and Optane technology

Intel has highlighted new products, tools and programs to support personalization of computing and described the trends creating new opportunities for developers.

The updated Intel RealSense technology will bring depth sensing to more devices and applications while introducing programs and toolkits for developers to help speed industrial IoT solutions to market.

The company said RealSense technology will be available on a wide-range of platforms such that developers can create new depth-sensing hardware and software.

In addition, developers can use Intel RealSense technology with Mac OS X, ROS, Linux, Scratch, Unity, XSplit, OBS, Structure SDK, OSVR, Unreal Engine 4 and Google Project Tango.

Based on RealSense technology, developers including Razer, XSplit and Savioke announced new platforms, peripherals and solutions.

Intel has also updated Intel Curie module for wearable computing and includes all of the hardware, firmware, software and application SDK needed to enable a variety of device experiences.


The Intel RealSense Smartphone developer kit featuring Google’s Project Tango enables new experiences, including indoor navigation and area learning, virtual reality, 3-D scanning, and more.

The newly introduced Intel Optane technology is based on 3D XPoint non-volatile memory media.

Company officials said new class of memory technology will also power a new line of Intel DIMMs designed for Intel’s next-generation data center platforms.

This apart, IoT sensor and microcontroller vendors including Atmel and Microchip have implemented enhanced privacy identification technology to secure smart and connected world.

Last month, HP joined hands with Intel to launch a new Center of Excellence (CoE) aimed to advance innovation in High Performance Computing (HPC) and help expand the accessibility of HPC to enterprises of all sizes.
