Apple rumored to be buying PrimeSense, developer of core Kinect technology for the 360

The folks at PrimeSense appear to be on the verge of being purchased by Apple is the rumors are true. Yesterday, there was tons of chatter that this was a done deal and that Apple was after their 3D technology, which is in everything from 3D printers, to grocery store automatic refills to the original Kinect Sensor for the Xbox 360 (although it doesn’t appear to be part of the Xbox One Kinect). We have met with these folks at CES several times in the past (to talk about the original Kinect) and they are a great bunch, so this purchase rumor, if true and everyone keeps their jobs, looks like a great opportunity to continue to grow their technology and start possibly incorporating it into Apples Mac and mobile devices.
