RealSense ID is an on-device solution that packs an active depth sensor, adds in some of that magic machine learning, and will spool it all around into Intel's push for facial recognition. Intel says that RealSense ID is capable of adapting to the physical features on users' faces, including features like facial hair and glasses -- right down to working in lighting conditions for people "with a wide range of heights or complexions".

Intel head of product management and marketing Joel Hagberg explained: "We've done extensive data collection of all ethnicities from Asia, Europe, Middle East Africa. We were very careful to ensure that we have all ethnicities covered".
