4 ways Intel® RealSense™ technology1 makes school more exciting

Wondering if Intel® RealSense™ technology can help make school life better? Well, if you’re looking to turn out amazing video presentations, create 3D models with ease and ensure that every shot for your project is great, then you may have found the answer.

Intel® RealSense™ technology is what makes it all possible with depth sensing 3D camera technology, letting it see things like a human eye. That means the camera can distinguish different objects in the frame, recognize gestures and adjust photos even after they are taken.1 Read on to see how these features can help make schoolwork more fun.

Create dynamic video presentations and spice up group work

With Intel® RealSense™ technology’s ability to distinguish you from your surroundings, it can replace the background with exciting locations or graphics. No need for green screens or any post-production software. So for your next geography class, you can take your classmates on a journey into the Sahara as you explain desertification.

It’s also great for collaboration, especially when paired with the Personify app, letting you work with others in a virtual space while using Skype*, Webex* or Hangout*. You can share slides and content with your friends almost as if you’re in the same room together. Use the app for fun stuff too, like planning tactics for the next football match with your friends!

Creating 3D models just got a whole lot easier
Intel® RealSense™ also makes 3D scanning on your PC a reality. It can take an image of a sculpture, flower or toy, and turn it into a 3D object ready for you to manipulate or even print in 3D!

The same technology also lets you get measurements instantly. Just snap a picture and draw a line between objects on the screen to see the length or distance. It could help make design and workshop classes a breeze.

Just tap to edit photos for the perfect shot
Still struggling to get the perfectly focused photo? With the Intel® RealSense™ camera, you can change the focus with one quick tap, even after you’ve taken the shot. From a single shot, you can shift the focus to different subjects in the image so that your photo presentation looks just the way you want it to. You can also use it to snap notes in class and not worry if they’re in focus while you’re shooting.

Control your presentations with a gesture
A device with Intel® RealSense™ technology can be controlled without ever having to touch it. With 22 tracking points per hand, you may be able to change a slide or play a video with a wave of your hand. So when you’re in front of the class telling everyone about your project, their attention is on you, not your device.

It’s also made for fun. Much like the Kinect*, the depth-sensing technology allows you to play motion games on your device between lectures or when hanging out with your friends – without the need for any accessories.

Intel® RealSense™ technology makes it possible to have fun while studying. See the other cool things you can do with Intel® RealSense™ and discover the many apps ready to be used with the technology.
