Creators of Intel's new RealSense 3D camera sensor technology is aiming to make computers more engaging and lifelike.

Intel told USA Today that the RealSense 3D technology allows computers to see depth, which could improve user experience for video conferencing, online education, gaming, and image creation and sharing.

"Our vision with Intel RealSense technology is to reverse that, and make our devices learn and understand us," Mooly Eden, general manager of Intel's Perceptual Computing Group, told USA Today. "By equipping them with technologies that mimic human senses in a more genuine way, our everyday experiences such as learning, communication and gaming are transformed; and entirely new ones are possible."

Intel made the RealSense 3D presentation at the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas this week.

Matt Smith, of DigitalTrends.com, said the technology shows Intel's progress in trying to make computers more engaging. 

"At CES 2013, Intel promised a commitment to what it calls 'perceptual computing,' the use of gestures, facial recognition, and other interface technologies to control a PC, but only some of what was hoped for was actually delivered on throughout the year, Smith wrote.

"The company is redoubling its efforts in 2014, however, with a family of hardware and software products it calls RealSense. As its name implies, the camera has the ability to see in three dimensions, making it possible to perceive distance as well as capture an image. In other words, the camera works more like the human eye," he added. 

Intel told USA Today that it will start building RealSense 3D cameras into its Ultrabook laptops, notebooks, tablets and other consumer tech devices from Acer, Asus, Dell, Fujitsu, HP, Lenovo and NEC by the middle of the year.

At CES, Intel displayed several demos that included 3D object scanning, real-time video editing that isolates objects and removed backgrounds.The demos also demonstrated RealSense's ability at gesture interaction, similar to what Leap demonstrated in 2013.

Intel is working with 3D Systems, Autodesk, DreamWorks, Microsoft Skype and Tencent to expand its technology to those services.
