WSJ heard rumors that Intel is getting into the augmented reality market as the chip giant is reportedly working on a wearable headset that uses the company's RealSense 3D camera technology. It's unknown if Intel plans to sell the device itself or whether it will serve as a prototype to convince the ecosystem of the capabilities of its RealSense technology.
The augmented-reality project is one way Intel hopes to exploit vision-related technologies to build new businesses outside the shrinking market for personal-computer processors. The Silicon Valley giant is likely to offer the headset design to other manufacturers rather than market its own model to end users, according to these people, who weren't aware of any manufacturing partners lined up yet.
