Devices equipped with Intel® RealSense™ technology are able to see and hear the world around them, enabling users to engage more naturally. In this article, Virtual Air Guitar Company (VAGC) and Intel software developers share insights on using Intel RealSense technology to move human-computer interaction (HCI) beyond the keyboard and mouse.
Vectorization Advisor is like having a trusted friend look over your code and give you advice based on what he sees. As you’ll see in this article, user feedback on the tool has included, “there are significant speedups produced by following advisor output, I'm already sold on this tool!”
Ombre Fabula uses the Intel® RealSense™ SDK to create a gesture-controlled interactive shadow play. This article describes the app's development, including details and code snippets explaining how the developers accurately sensed different hand-shapes by using custom blob-detection algorithms.
Mystery Mansion is a hidden-object adventure game whose UI uses face tracking exclusively. In this article the developer, Cyrus Lum, provides code snippets and advice about the challenges he faced when creating his game.
Intel held the Intel® Modern Code Developer Challenge that had about 2,000 students from 130 universities in 19 countries registered to participate in the Challenge. They were provided access to Intel® Xeon Phi™ coprocessors to optimize code used in a CERN openlab brain simulation research project. In this article Daniel Vea Falguera (Modern Code Developer Challenge winner) shares how he...
Android* devices powered by the Intel® Atom™ processor are rising in popularity, and supporting applications are being released continuously. To meet the needs of application developers focused on creating games for Android devices with Intel Atom processors, middleware companies began supporting x86. One such company, CRI Middleware Co., Ltd., offers runtime library x86 support for Android...
Posture Monitor uses Intel® RealSense™ technology to alert a slouching computer user to sit up straight. In this case study, you’ll learn how the authors went about developing the app, and see their frame-rate processing code sample, which illustrates how to minimize power consumption and still provide a smooth user experience.
This paper is a result of a joint CERN openlab-Intel research activity with the aim to investigate whether Linux Containers can be used together with SR-IOV in conjunction and complementary to the existing virtualization infrastructure in the CERN Data Centre. This solution could be potentially applied to the storage nodes, which are principally used for Input/Output operations, while keeping the...
