Intel Introduces Technology for Better Human-Computer Interaction - C-Inc., I.T. - Tutorial

Computing is still largely been defined by human interaction with a screen, keyboard and mouse. Intel is well on its way to changing that.

CEO Brian Krzanich showed off several new technologies at the 2015 Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas Tuesday that take computing 3-D as well as wire- and password-free.

Krzanich’s key note speech was filled with demonstrations of new products, including True Key, a new cross-platform application by Intel Security to finally do away with passwords.

True Key makes each user themselves part of the password by using factors unique to him or her. For instance, a person’s “facial math,” meaning the distance between his or her eyes and nose can be used combined with his or her devices in place of a password.

“It helps make your current passwords stronger, remembers them and instantly logs you in to your favorite websites and apps, so you don’t have to remember multiple passwords,” reads the True Key website.

True Key is compatible with iOS, Android, Windows, Mac, and across all of the popular browsers. It will also be pre-installed on devices from HP and Lenovo and will soon be a part of McAfee LiveSafe.

Krzanich also unveiled RealSense cameras, which essentially ups the technology game in computer-human interaction.

RealSense cameras make use of gesture and voice controls to operate computerized devices.

“Intel RealSense 3D camera is the first integrated camera that sees more like we do, so it can understand and respond to natural movement in three dimensions,” reads the RealSense website.

“Smile. Wink. Wave. Swipe. Now you can interact with your computer more like you do with people, because it can understand your hand and head movements—even your facial expressions.”

The video below offers a glimpse at the technology:

The 3D camera has three lenses: a conventional camera, an infrared camera, and an infrared laser projector.

It is the three lenses combined that enable the device to deduce depth. The lenses distinguish infrared light that has bounced back from objects in front of it to gauge depth. It is this visual data, when combined with Intel RealSense motion-tracking software, that offers up a touch-free interface that responds to hand, arm, and head motions as well as facial expressions.

This technology makes 3D scanning a reality. Users can scan and save a variety of items — from a piece of art, to a flower, to one’s own face. Users can leave it as-is or manipulate it to suit their preferences. The camera also enables users to remove their chat background or swap in a replacement.
