The Razer Stargazer is a new webcam geared toward gamer streamers and broadcasters online. It offers 60 frames per second video capture at 720p resolution, or 30 frames per second for 1080p and an automatic noise cancelling microphone. But what really makes this camera unique is its Intel RealSense technology, which adds features like Dynamic Background Removal, 3D Scanning, and Facial and Gesture Recognition.
Dynamic Background Removal will remove or change your background without the need for a green screen setup. If you're streaming gameplay, it makes it possible for you to look like you're actually in the game. It also saves space that would be taken up by a larger box sitting on top of the gameplay footage.
3D Scanning makes it possible for game developers to port scanned objects right into Unity. Gamers can use this as well, by scanning their face or objects into games. This also can be used for scanning in and preparing files to be 3D printed.
Facial and Gesture Recognition means the Razer Stargazer will work with Windows Hello, a feature that Microsoft implemented for unlocking the computer with a compatible camera. The gesture support will let you launch applications and play certain games just by waving your hand.
Razer Stargazer isn't on sale yet, but you can sign up to be notified when you'll be able to purchase it later this year.
