The Intel® RealSense™ SDK has been discontinued. No ongoing support or updates will be available.
To be clear, I would like to emphasize two things:
1. We are well aware of the issue and its solution will be a major aspect in the very next release of our SDK, to come out this summer
To be a little blunter, we are very aware that some of the best, "game-changing" usage models for RealSense will be through the web browser. While online sales have continued to grow strongly even during a global recession, there are still some gaps in its usage, especially when it comes to sizes and dimensions. Case in point for me, last year, when I bought my first motorcycle, I knew I needed a helmet. Thanks to my time in the Navy, I knew my hat size was a 7 ¾, but motorcycle helmets come in S, M, L, XL, etc. In the future, I could have, in that situation, just go to the helmet company's website, they could access the Intel RealSense camera in my computer, scan my head and tell me my helmet size. The same concept works for eye glasses, shoes, suits, who knows what. Plus, there could be an even more interested paradigm coming where I scan my torso, then some robot tailored could stitch me a near-custom suit. In the future, when ZZ Top sings about a "Sharp Dressed Man," it could be due, in some small part, to Intel RealSense technology.
So, there you have it, in a nutshell (or TL;DR for you Reddit fans out there):
