eSports are becoming more popular than ever, and both players and spectators want to immerse themselves in the action. Imagine seeing the faces of your teammates on your screen, hovering just above the game window, rather than just hearing them or reading their thoughts on a text message.
That’s now a reality with chat heads. There’s a great guide to getting you started on building a chat head function into League of Legends and Hearthstone, providing sample code to use with the Intel RealSense SDK.
There are plenty of resources available to help you to incorporate Intel RealSense technology into your applications – for example, there’s a ‘cheat sheet’ available which provides camera specifications and the option to purchase a Developer Kit online.
There’s also an online community where people can share their experiences and questions with fellow developers, and you can find out more about this exciting technology.
