RealSense Racer Prototype
As a development partner of Intel, Current Studios has been working on applications for RealSense depth-sensing cameras.
Current was challenged to build a prototype game for the world-facing RealSense camera to feature in a customer demo at Best Buy stores in San Francisco.
The Futuristic Racing game uses RealSense Scene Perception to create a virtual environment connected to objects in front of the user. Blocks become obstacles that the vehicle can collide with in the virtual environment.
The combination of Infrared cameras in the RealSense technology give the device greater spatial awareness, allowing the digital vehicle to realistically race in the space - even hide behind physical objects.
With real-time mapping, the camera continues to understand changes in the environment when objects are moved, further blurring the lines between digital and physical worlds.
