“Apple finally has acquired PrimeSense, the maker of 3-D technology. It could use the technology in existing iDevices, or the oft-rumored Apple television,” Chris Ciaccia reports for TheStreet.
“The deal between the technology giant and PrimeSense had been rumored for weeks, but nothing was consummated until now,” Ciaccia reports. “PrimeSense 3D Capri sensor has already been demonstrated on a Nexus tablet, so it’s possible that Apple could bring that technology not only to its long-awaited and oft-rumored television set, but an iPad and, perhaps, an iPhone as well.”
“Apple has talked about moving into the television arena for some time, though nothing has happened, outside of Apple’s set-top box,” Ciaccia reports. “What it does with PrimeSense’s technology, however, is anyone’s guess. There within lies the excitement.”
