The three dimensional (3D) technology is one of its kind scientific achievements in recent history, and it is continuously astonishing humanity with the unique solutions it provides every area of its application.
3D sensing is a technology that increases the capability of the camera for facial and object recognition in AR, gaming and a wide range of applications.
The universal application of 3D sensing would be how it is used in cell phones through gesture recognition into the user interface which resulted in consumers being able to operate their electronic gadgets through touch motion and facial recognition.
Apart from mobile phones and tablets, this technology has several more extensive applications that range from robots to drones. 3D sensors are also used for greater connectivity between artificial intelligence and the real world.
How does it Work?
In gaming consoles entirely based on 3D sensing, the player is able to play games through mere gestures without tapping a single button. It is possible because of an infrared light passes through a visual element that spreads light into a prearranged pattern or of light, similar to the concept of prism light divergence.
After interacting with the infrared light, the system acquires information across the room by locating the objects off which the light had reflected. This technology also enables homeowners to control 3D automated home entertainment systems without using a remote control. The only known problem with this technology is its massive power consumption.
Few Modern Applications
All electronic giants of the world are including 3D sensing to their products to provide a unique user experience. 3D sensors can penetrate through the walls, and this feature could be used for home security systems as families would be able to monitor different rooms of the home even remotely.
