Intel has Helmet That Gives X Ray Vision

The CES (Consumer Electronics Show) 2016 is going on and all the new and latest technical things can be seen in the CES show. In the show Intel has revealed a new helmet that is a sort of technology which the the Microsoft has been working for the past years. They have named their helmet as Daqri Smart Helmet. The helmet uses Realsense 3D camera that helps in creating Augmented reality. If you don’t know anything about augmented reality the you can read below otherwise skip this.

According to Wikipedia –

Augmented reality (AR) is a live direct or indirect view of a physical, real-world environment whose elements are augmented (or supplemented) by computer-generated sensory input such as sound, video, graphics or GPS data. It is related to a more general concept called mediated reality, in which a view of reality is modified (possibly even diminished rather than augmented) by a computer. As a result, the technology functions by enhancing one’s current perception of reality. By contrast, virtual reality replaces the real world with a simulated one.  Augmentation is conventionally in real-time and in semantic context with environmental elements, such as sports scores on TV during a match. With the help of advanced AR technology (e.g. adding computer vision and object recognition) the information about the surrounding real world of the user becomes interactive and digitally manipulable. Artificial information about the environment and its objects can be overlaid on the real world.

According to the CES report this helmet is powered by Intel’s M7 chip and RealSense. It could be fun experiencing the Augmented Reality otherwise we can also take it as for professional use like in case water pipes we can see water flowing through pipes and we can tackle several problems using this.
