Are there consumer products using Time of Flight ranging camera technology?

+6
−0

There was some years ago announcements of new developments in cameras that were able to record the intensity and time lag of light that they detected to be able to view the range topology and reflectance of a target.

Does anyone know if such camera technology has been commercialised yet?

Hi KalleMP! I'm curious if you're interested in this for autofocus (my assumption) or to get 3D information for some other reason?

@MattDM The idea was to use it as a HID to detect finger movement over a printed keyboard for instance where you cannot necessarily see the motion of the fingers if they lift and fall on the same key or how long they press down.
