[Financial Post] Apple Inc buys Kinect sensor company PrimeSense Ltd for US$350-million - Page 3

post #21 of 26

This will be neat. Next step to Apple TV. Maybe this chip will even make it into iDevices?

It's probably nothing compared to what they make if they're able to purchase the whole company for $350m.

Ouch. I wonder how the anti-Apple Xbox "gamers" (lel) feel about this. Even worse, I wonder how they'd feel if the Xbox division was sold off like rumored, and Apple were its new owner.

Unless I'm mistaken, it's the producer of the sensor(s) in the Kinect that Apple bought, not the creators of the Kinect unit itself.

The question would be, why would Jarvis have you, and further more keep you?
Already in Iron Man 3, Jarvis is >> that panicing human (in all aspects).

Joke aside, this kind of detection tech is a big thing...
I mean, look how much fuss they've made with the fingerprint sensor on the 5S.

Imagine a real time face recognition (face ID recognition) and all that jazz along with the motion control / gesture control yada yada.
Phone security, games, minority report style UI.

Ofc spiced up with follow-up pattents that will render pretty much any kind of face recognition + distance estimation / gesture tech fair game for law suits.... thumb.gif

You are correct. Its just the sensor chips and tech.

Joke went over my head and I haven't seen Ironman 3 yet redface.gif Maybe I'll catch it over winter break.

That's where I see this going, but more for their laptops and desktops. If they can shrink it and implement this into phones too, kudos to them. thumb.gif
