Intel unveils its own 'merged reality' headset called Project Alloy
Everyone is making a virtual or augmented reality headset these days. Joining the likes of Microsoft, Sony and (possibly) Apple, Intel is currently developing a headset that uses its own RealSense depth-sensing cameras, Replay graphics-creation software and other Intel intellectual property. Revealed at its Intel’s developer conference today, the ‘merged reality’ device — dubbed ‘Project Alloy’ — has a key advantage over other headsets in that it allows users to see their own hands, and use them to interact with objects in the game. Using the headset’s RealSense cameras, the headset could detect a user’s finger movement and allow users to manipulate objects within a simulation — thus negating the need for controllers.
