Intel's CEO Brian Krzanich unveiled Project Alloy during his opening keynote at the 2016 Intel Developer Forum in San Francisco last August 16. Project Alloy is an all-in-one virtual reality solution that is made from ground up. It is an example future of merge reality in which the Alloy platform redefines the possibilities in an all-in-one VR platform.

The Project Alloy will operate untethered, meaning you can use this VR headset without the pesky cords that you need to connect to the computer. The computing power is located in the Alloy Head-Mounted Device (HMD) which allows users to experience VR untethered allowing free range of motion with 6 degrees-of-freedom across a large space in a room.

Also through merged reality, you can see your hands and other people while using the device. The device is using Intel RealSense technology which allows you to use your hands to interact with elements of the virtual world and thus merging realities.

Alloy is also powered by Intel RealSense camera's that's attached in the headset and is not dependent in any external sensors or any cameras around the room.

Unfortunately, Intel Project Alloy won't be available around anytime soon for consumers, although the device's hardware and APIs will be available for developers, creators and Intel partners in creating their own content products by 2017.
