    "Steve? Yeah, Hi, this is Anders over at HTC... We have come to the understanding that our customers don't look stupid enough when using our Vive product... Yeah, I know, right? Yeah, so we were thinking - They'd look like complete prats if they had a whacking great rhino horn on the front of their faces.... Yep, all that looking up and down while standing in funny poses... Yeah, like some freaky Ceratosaurus... Aw, come on, it'll be hi-LAR-ious!!!"

    Either side of the 'horn' is a set of three cameras opening up lots of useful, accurate sensory information for VR system processing.
    The Intel Realsense camera module has two cameras: one RGB colour camera, one nIR phase=time-of-flight camera; and one nIR pulse emitter.

    In function, this will be broadly similar to the existing Leap Motion front-mounts for the Rive (and Rift). The main difference will be the addition of the colour camera data to the Leap Motion's depth-only data. The Leap Motion contains two nIR cameras along with a pulses nIR emitter, and the cameras themselves are somewhat more capable than the ones in the Intel Realsense module (much wider field of view). Using two Realsense modules should give them about the same field of view as the Leap Motion.
