As noted first by AllThingsD, Apple spokeswoman Kristin Huguet released a boilerplate response saying, “Apple buys smallertechnology companies from time to time, and we generally do notdiscuss 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.
It's alsoworth 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.

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.
The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
