You saw the Creative 3D camera used in the Ultimate Coder challenge earlier this year and you probably heard that it’s going to be available as the Senz3D consumer product but there’s more going on. Intel expects depth sensors to be built into PCs by late 2014 and Intel Capital is putting $100 Million into the arena.
Trigence Semiconductor has just received funding through the $300m Intel Capital Ultrabook fund for their DNote Audio technology. Dnote is a technology that drives analogue loudspeakers found in consumer electronics via digital signals to lower power requirements. Actually, looking at it, it seems that Trigence have developed a new speaker coil technology.
Trigence, a Japansese company, will take an undisclosed sum from Intel Capital to further develop DNote Audio.
No more information has been given but it wouldn’t be wrong to consider that they might have had a bit of funding from the Intel Capital Ultrabook fund and that they’re preparing an Ultrabook-optimised Android application player (Hypervisor to give it its correct term) for Ultrabooks. Take the thought one stage further and wouldn’t it be interesting if they teamed up with Intel’s AppUp team to support application payment and download in one place. the idea has legs but may take a while to bring to fruition.
