Intel Builds Virtual Reality Platform Around 3D Sensing Technology

Posted November 07, 2016 12:00 AM by Engineering360 eNewsletter

Microprocessor giant Intel has introduced an internally-developed virtual reality (VR) solution named Project Alloy. The Alloy VR platform goes beyond basic VR by offering what Intel calls "merged reality." The Alloy head-mounted display (HMD) uses the company's Intel RealSense 3D cameras, so that a user can interact with the physical as well as the virtual world without the need for room-mounted cameras or external sensors. Computing power built into the Alloy HMD makes it an "all-in-one" VR solution that lets a user walk around untethered by cables.
