Intel made a slew of announcements recently, among them a new camera module for smartphones and new versions of its Atom mobile processor. Intel's RealSense 3D camera is meant to help solve complex problems based on what it can see, but it can also power things like gesture-based controls. Intel CEO Brian Krzanich showed a prototype RealSense camera for smartphones that has a longer range than previous versions of the 3D camera. Intel plans to make the smaller, smartphone-compatible version of RealSense available later this year. The company also talked up its Atom x3 processor. It demonstrated the processor working in a smartphone for the first time, but also has expanded the x3's potential to include the internet of things. Intel plans to make versions of the x3 that can withstand temperature extremes and weather, with support for Android and Linux devices. Intel envisions the x3 playing a starring role in home and business automation projects. Last, Intel said it will release a turnkey program for its Atom x5 processors, which should help device makers get their hardware to market quicker.
