Razer teamed with Intel on Stargazer, including Intel's impressive RealSense 3D technology inside of it. The Stargazer is capable of capturing 720p at 60FPS, as well as 1080p at 30FPS, with a noise-cancelling, dual-array microphone. It's powered by the Intel RealSense SR300 camera, which brings 3D to the table.

Intel's RealSense SR300 camera is capable of Windows Hello support, so you can use your face to log into Windows 10. Razer is more excited about the Dynamic Background Removal capability, where you can filter out the entire image except for the person. This might not sound like much, but for Twitch streamers, this is going to be huge - you can filter out everything around you, so you're picking up just your body, and have that overlayed on your stream or YouTube video.

Developers can use this for in-game actions, with Intel promoting this feature with its RealSense camera. As for pricing and availability, Razer is aiming at $199.99, with availability in Q2 2016.
