Apple confirms about the acquisition of Prime Sense, but declines to mention the value of the deal

Apple Balla states that Apple has gone one step ahead in bringing more innovation to its products, as the company acquires the Prime Sense-the famous Tel Aviv based 3D sensor manufacturer.

An Apple spokesperson called Kristin Huguet confirmed about the deal, but didn’t reveal the value of the purchase.

Huguet said, “Apple buys smaller technology companies from time to time, and we generally do not discuss our purpose or plans.”

In a previous report of Calacalist, a financial newspaper, it was predicted that Apple would buy the Prime Sense for $345 million. But other sources informed that the value of the deal can be higher than $345 million.

Prime Sense, the Israel based sensor developer, worked with the Microsoft Xbox 360 which is one of the most popular gaming consoles in today’s world. Other notable technologies in which the company was being involved are: 3D scanners, iRobot’s Ava and the Asus Xtion.

With the outstanding 3D sensor technology of Prime Sense, Apple seems to strengthen its ability to add more innovation to its devices.
