|What is RealSense™? Did you ever see movie Minority Report, there Tom Cruise waved his hand in the air and controlled the screen. Yes, that’s it. However, Intel RealSense can do even more than that, it can do face recognition, gesture recognition, scene perception, 3D scanning and more.
According to Intel’s official specification, x5-z8350 shall not support RealSense™, therefore RealSense™ support is never in the UP board’s plan. It started from two months ago, Intel RealSense™ team contacted the UP team to validate RealSense™ camera on the UP board and support it to run on Linux. We explained the limitation coming from the official specification in hardware and software, however, the RealSense™ team really liked the UP board too much and provided a lot of back-up documents to convince us to try.
