My favorite addition to the RealSense repertoire, however, takes advantage of software applications Uraniom and itSeez3D, two technologies capable of working together to scan your real face into games like Fallout 4. It’s genius, and it’s astonishing Microsoft didn’t try something like this this with Kinect.

Extolling the benefits of its RealSense technology, Intel offered CES goers the chance to be scanned and turned into a 3D model for a variety of reasons. However, the experience that caught our eye the most was the chance to be added to Fallout 4 and play as ourself in the game. Using a HP laptop, a staff member scanned eager parties with the RealSense cameras and itSeez3D application. This then rendered a high res, fully three-dimensional version of the subject’s head and shoulders, which were then sent into the cloud.

After getting scanned by an HP tablet with RealSense cameras and itSeez3D app, the model is loaded into another app called Uranium, and from there it can be pulled from the game on the PC — in this case it was Fallout 4. The whole process took less than 10 minutes and the result is really cool. You’ll see yourself running around or flying with a jetpack powersuit, ready to take on Bethesda’s post-apocalyptic world.

Uraniom and itSeez3D, the technologies behind putting your face into the game, have been around for awhile, so the innovation here is how quickly and well Intel’s RealSense tech can 3D scan your head. It’s pretty good, though you’d have to be pretty self-absorbed to want to spend the money you’d need to get a RealSense tablet just so you could see your own face in video games. Instead, Intel’s goal is to make RealSense a widely adopted standard so that you have that option already built in to whatever you happen to buy next.
