Apple buys PrimeSense

PrimeSense’s technology is in more than 24 million digital devices, letting them monitor a scene and spot things like people’s bodies, movements and gestures, furniture and walls. And Apple Inc paid about $350 million to acquire PrimeSense, the Israeli start-up that developed the motion-sensing technology in Microsoft’s Xbox video game console. The deal suggests that Apple is interested in incorporating motion-sensing technology into its own products in the future. When the company purchased finger-print sensor company AuthenTec in 2012, the technology appeared in the latest iPhone 5s just over a year later.
