How Apple stomped on Intel’s plans to make RealSense emotionally smart

Intel has grand plans for computers that will recognize human emotion using its RealSense 3D camera, but Apple appears to have dealt it a setback.

RealSense uses a combination of infrared, laser and optical cameras to measure depth and track motion. It’s been used on a drone that can navigate its own way through a forest, for example.

It can also detect changes in facial expressions, and Intel wanted to give RealSense the ability to read human emotions by combining it with an emotion recognition technology developed by Emotient.

Emotient’s plug-in allowed RealSense to detect whether people are happy or sad by analyzing movement in their lips, eyes and cheeks.
