The 2016 Intel Developer Forum is currently taking place in San Francisco, and during the opening keynote speech yesterday Brian Krzanich, Intel CEO, unveiled Project Alloy. This is Intel's "all-in-one virtual reality solution", which incorporates their existing RealSense 3D camera technology. The platform differs from products such as HTC Vive and Oculus Rift due to the fact that it is a stand-alone product and does not need to be connected to a PC. Furthermore, the cameras are able to register your environment and hands, so external sensors and hand controls are not required. Overall, it seems to be a combination of VR plus augmented reality.

Project Alloy is not a stand alone product and it is not ready for consumers yet - instead, Intel are hoping that VR companies such as HTC and Oculus will incorporate the technology into their headsets.

I hope I'll jump in to VR when things like this are used - minimising the number of cables and external tracking devices is going to simplify things greatly. Hurry up technology :lol:.
