Apple Confirms Buyout For PrimeSense, Get Ready For Motion Controlled Future
Apple has confirmed its acquisition of the Microsoft’s Kinect maker, Prime Sense. Last week, an Israeli news source Calcalist confirmed that Apple has acquired PrimeSense for $345 Million.
Now in an official statement to All Things D, an Apple spokesperson said: “Apple buys smaller technology companies from time to time, and we generally do not discuss our purpose or plans”. The deal is said to have been completed on Sunday and the total cost involved was around $360 million.
Apple’s intentions behind this acquisition is not clear, but one can sense a motion controlled future ahead. Apple is also believed to use this technology for its rumored iTV. Like many other Apple rumors, only time will tell what Apple will do with this tech.
