Intel RealSense 3D suffer setback as Apple bought Emotient

PC World writes Apple stomped on Intel's RealSense 3D plans by acquiring Emotient, a developer of the emotion recognition technology. Emotient's plug-in allowed Intel's RealSense technology to detect whether people are happy or sad, but after Apple bought the company the plug-in is no longer part of Intel's RealSense software development kit (SDK).
It’s not exactly clear why the Emotient engine was pulled. Apple didn't respond to a request for comment, and an Intel spokesman couldn't immediately explain.

It's possible Intel didn't want to rely on a technology that's now owned by Apple, or Apple may have stopped providing access to the Emotient plug-in.
