Apple Acquires PrimeSense For About $350 Million

The exact figure has not been confirmed yet but it is confirmed that Apple is bringing PrimeSense under its umbrella. The Israeli start-up specializes in motion seƱor technology and developed the Kinect found in Microsoft’s Xbox console.


Why did Apple purchase a company that develops 3D motion sensors? It’s safe to assume the technology will be incorporated in some device in the near future but Apple has provided no details about the deal at the present time. However in a recent statement Jennifer Kite-Powell, a spokeswoman for PrimeSense said “We can confirm the deal with Apple.”

The results of this deal more than likely will be introduced in the near future. After acquiring fingerprint-scanning outfit AuthenTec in July 2012 Apple incorporated their technology a little over a year later. As we know the iPhone 5S introduced the fingerprint identification technology months ago.
