Apple-PrimeSense deal confirmed

The rumor ends today. Apple has just issued a response to numerous reports about the deal with 3D-sensing company, PrimeSense.

As noted first by AllThingsD, Apple spokeswoman Kristin Huguet released a boilerplate response saying, “Apple buys smaller technology companies from time to time, and we generally do not discuss our purpose or plans.” Sources added that Apple offered around $360 million to acquire the Israeli-based company notable for its work with Microsoft's Kinect gaming console.

Microsoft is recently using a different sensor technology on its latest Kinect for the Xbox One, but early adopters cannot forget PrimeSense's motion-sensing technology on the older console.

Interest in the company could reveal some clues into just what Apple has in store for us. The Cupertino-based tech giant might be incorporating PrimeSense's technology into an Apple television, or, perhaps, an Apple smartwatch.

It's also worth noting that PrimeSense has a new product called Capri which uses a new SoC and an improved algorithm for 3D sensing. PrimeSense specifically made it for mobile phones, tablets, laptops, AIOs, TVs, and even robots.
