Razer and Intel are collaborating on a 3D-sensing camera for consumer-end VR and gaming computers. The camera reportedly makes use of Intel’s RealSense technology, which so far has focused primarily on advanced facial recognition features as well as gesture input. Why would you want that? Well — Intel says it will let anyone put their face into a Twitch game streaming video.
Intel says that Razer’s new camera will let anyone do the same thing without setting up a pricey camera rig, because the depth sensing camera and software can isolate your face from the background and add it to the video.
