Intel shows Compute Stick prototype with RealSense camera

Earlier this year at CES 2016, Intel refreshed it Compute Stick line of PC-on-Stick with Intel Core M Skylake processor. Now Intel has introduced a new reference design of PC stick with Core M processor, built-in Intel's RealSense, depth-sensing camera and an array of microphones.

The refreshed Compute Stick is thicker, so that it can house more space for camera lens and sensor components. It is equipped with an Intel Realsense F200 3D camera, which sticks out on the side.The camera supports 8-bit infrared captuire and 1080p color video recording at 30fps.

The Stick can be connected to the HDMI port on the side of a TV and angle the camera so it points to your direction, and you could use the camera to login to Windows, and other apps using the Windows Hello feature. Users will also be able to take advantage of the depth-sensing feature of the camera, and interact with the PC using 3D gestures to control user interface, play games, etc.

In addition to RealSense camera, the PC Stick houses a full sized USB 3.0 port, USB 2.0 port, micro USB port for power, HDMI port and has a fan to decimate heat. Other specs are not known.

It is also not clear if Intel will launch its own Compute Stick with RealSense camera anytime soon, but the chip-maker is encouraging Chinese OEMs to adopt the design for their own product.
