The future is here yet again, thanks to Intel.

We all know technology is at a groundbreaking point. We’ve come so far so fast, but while advancements have happened at a steady incline over the past decade, the number of ways we use technology in our life is about to skyrocket like never before.

We’ve seen this in wearable tech and robot bartenders, but the most important way it affects our lives is in how it helps us work and create.

If you’re a creative professional (which I know most of you are), Intel’s RealSense technology is going to blow your mind.

Take a look at the RealSense website to flip through all the advancements that are coming because of it.

I’m particularly excited about the 3D camera capability. I had the chance to work with some 3D makers this summer, and it was so enjoyable that I’m in the middle of learning how to create my own 3D designs for printing (more on that in the coming weeks). This kind of camera will simplify the 3D scanning process and make it affordable for the rest of us.

It also has the ability to take a photo of something and have it instantly measured (as seen above). Measuring tape is about to become a thing of the past, and that is going to be a true blessing for anyone in construction and interior design.

It also features gesture control – which means that you can literally doodle in the air and your art will appear on the screen. I have no idea how this is even possible but I can’t wait to use it!

We’ve been watching the Jim Parsons commercials for this with curiosity over the past few months, but the time has finally come to see what it’s all about.

I’m testing the super thin new Dell Venue 8 Series tablet next week (which has RealSense built in), and will let you know how much I love it after I’ve had some time to explore the features.

I’m required to disclose the relationship between my site and Intel Canada, but all opinions are my own!
