Intel has launched a set of glasses built into a helmet that give x-ray-like vision using its RealSense 3D camera.
The glasses-cum-hardhat was unveiled at CES in Las Vegas and has been co-developed with augmented reality company Daqri using Intel’s latest processor and camera technology. It has taken concepts – like those of Microsoft’s Hololens – and produced a real product.
