Intel CEO Brian Krzanich kicked off the IDF 2015 in San Francisco this morning.

"Computers are on our desks, in our bags, in our clothes, in our homes and on our bodies. They are not only growing smarter and more connected, but gaining senses and becoming an extension of ourselves," he said.

Krzanich unveiled a number of updates to Intel RealSense technology that will bring depth sensing to more devices and applications.

Intel RealSense technology offers depth sensing capability. In collaboration with Google, Intel is enabling mobile depth sensing by combining Google's Project Tango and Intel RealSense technologies into an Android smartphone developer kit.

The Intel RealSense Smartphone developer kit featuring Google's Project Tango enables new experiences, including indoor navigation and area learning, virtual reality, 3-D scanning, and more.The developer kit is targeted for release to select Android developers by the end of this year.

RealSense will be available on a wide-range of platforms, opening up more opportunities for developers to create new depth-sensing hardware and software. In addition to Windows* and Android, developers will be able to use Intel RealSense technology with Mac OS X, ROS, Linux, Scratch, Unity, XSplit, OBS, Structure SDK, OSVR, Unreal Engine 4 and Google's Project Tango. Also, a number of developers, including Razer, XSplit and Savioke announced new platforms, peripherals and other solutions based on the Intel RealSense technology.

Intel also announced new collaborations for securing the Internet of Things (IoT), in addition to programs and toolkits for developers to help speed industrial IoT solutions to market.

Krzanich provided updates on the Intel Curie module aimed at the wearable market.

Intel also previewed a new reality competition program called "America's Greatest Makers," produced by United Artists Media Group CEO Mark Burnett and appearing across leading networks and properties of Turner Broadcasting.
