Total Immersion teams with Intel on AR in chips

Total Immersion, which specializes in augmented reality, has teamed up with Intel to bring AR features like gesture recognition to the chipmaker's future products. Total Immersion marketing chief Antoine Brachet revealed to Reuters and others on Wednesday that products could reach consumers in as soon as three years, depending on consumer response. This would allow digital information such as text, graphics and games to be overlaid atop screens and allow users to interact with them.

Intel's chips are used in 80 percent of PCs around the world, so this undertaking would bring augmented reality to the masses. Applying the features into hardware will make it faster for consumer adoption, as it won't require additional downloads.

Thus far, the best example in the consumer world of augmented reality is Nintendo's 3DS system, which ships with augmented reality cards that display a 3D image on the portable game console's screen when users look at the card through the device's camera.
