Intel announced a family of hardware and software technology that aims to promote the use of voice, touch, gestures and other “human-like senses” in devices powered by its microprocessors.

The first product in the new RealSense technology line is a super-thin 3-D camera that can be embedded in notebooks, tablets and other devices, Intel said at an event at the Consumer Electronics Show today in Las Vegas.  It will be “the world’s first integrated 3-D depth and 2-D camera module that helps devices see depth much like the human eye.”

The camera includes a depth sensor and 1080 p color camera. It will be integrated into devices in the second half of the year  from  Acer, Asus, Dell, Fujitsu, Hewlett-Packard, Lenovo, and NEC.

“We see each other in 3D and touch each other in 3D. Why the hell do we need to look at the computer in 2-D?” said Mooly Eden, general manager of perceptual computing for Intel. “We will make machine interfaces natural, intensive, immersive. We will make it more human like.”

Intel also said it is partnering with Microsoft to deliver more immersive experiences for users of Microsoft’s Skype videoconferencing technology. Since the RealSense technology can extract a human face from an image with its “live background removal technology,”  video users will be able to easily  change the background in real time. “What used to take a studio with a green screen — we can do it instantly,” Eden said. 

CES CEO Brian Krzanich, who is delivering the keynote address for CES 2014 later today, will use his presentation to demonstrate the RealSense technology.
