AMD’s Embedded technology expands the possible across various market segments, from education to casino gaming to office collaboration to healthcare. The latest example is Sony’s Future Lab concept “T”, a projector prototype that creates interactive space on a table or the surfaces of real objects.
By applying advanced machine learning techniques and a highly accurate depth-sensing system, “T” can recognize objects and gestures, transforming the way users interact in a variety of applications. As part of Sony’s Future Lab Program, announced at IFA this year, “T” will be opened up for development with select partners to evaluate new use cases in different situations over the coming months, leveraging feedback to refine and evolve the project.
“T” is powered by an AMD Embedded processor, which provides leading graphics and image processing in a power-efficient package. In addition to enabling high-performance applications, AMD’s power-efficient technology is particularly beneficial for projectors, helping keep heat and energy costs low.
The potential use cases for “T” span showrooms, shop fronts, office spaces and much more. For example, “T” can be used for educational simulation, where users move around different 3D objects on the tabletop to bring ideas to life in a simple, visual and tangible way. What has previously been sketched out on whiteboards during classroom hours moves beyond 2D, dramatically increasing interaction, and inspiring new ways to communicate and collaborate.
AMD is proud to support Sony’s Future Lab concept “T” with its embedded technology and we look forward to the next wave of innovation!
