Last week, it was only a well-founded rumor, but this week it’s official. Apple is acquiring the Israeli company, PrimeSense for some $345 million. Why? Not only because it’s a great company that developed the motion-detecting game console, Kinect, but Apple is interested, as in VERY interested, in PrimeSense’s ability to map 3D spaces. PrimeSense is best known for the controls it developed for Microsoft’s Xbox 360 console, but its solutions are also adaptable to iRobot’s Ava, Asus Xtion and 3D scanners.
