Impressive amount of silicon this gizmo has. NEC, AD, TI, Wolfson, etc. Vendors from all over the world! But at the heart of it all, the PS1080! A 3D image processor. Resolution to the cm in depth! resolution to the millimeter in X/Y! Impressive! really impressive! I wonder if it would be possible to know how many years or months all these took to be developed? I'm not talking about the time Microsoft took to get the Kinect rolling but of the time it took PrimeSense to develop the technology. Anybody?

Yeh, I am also interested if there is any related patent or papers for the PrimeSense chip above.

That is damn impressive stuff; sounds similar to the kind of technology movie-makers pay $$$$ for, crammed down into consumer-grade chips. Very clever.

Really cool technology. This kind of machine-human interface was not thought to be affordable now but this company has proved it. I would love to know the way they planned and executed this thing and Im sure there will be loads of very valuable lessons they would have learnt.

That link doesn't work for me. Is there another source for that file? (or similar files?) thanks!

NEXT UPCOMING BROADCAST

What are the engineering and design challenges in creating successful IoT devices? These devices are usually small, resource-constrained electronics designed to sense, collect, send, and/or interpret data. Some of the devices need to be smart enough to act upon data in real time, 24/7. Are the design challenges the same as with embedded systems, but with a little developer- and IT-skills added in? What do engineers need to know? Rick Merritt talks with two experts about the tools and best options for designing IoT devices in 2016. Specifically the guests will discuss sensors, security, and lessons from IoT deployments.
