Intel: Depth-sensing cameras to reach notebooks in 2H of 2014

If Intel has its way, laptops and ultraportables will include depth-sensing cameras in the second half of 2014. This type of technology will enable computers to sense movement, track emotion and even monitor reading habits of children. What Intel tries to achieve is something like the Kinect, but better and more optimized for short-range interaction. Full details at NetworkWorld.
Such depth cameras will be integrated into laptops and ultrabooks in the second half of 2014. The technology will initially appear in external webcams such as Senz3D external webcam, which was jointly developed by Logitech and Intel, and will become available in the coming quarters. The camera technology will ultimately trickle down to tablets and smartphones, Nanduri said.

The camera will also be able to identify characteristics, contours and shapes of items in view. For example, the camera's ability to sense distance, size, depth, color, contours and other parameters of structures could also help in the growing area of 3D printing. A depth sensing picture of a model can be extracted to reveal exact specifications and other details of a design, which can then be printed.
