Apple acquires the company behind the original Kinect system

Apple acquires PrimeSense, the company who developed the first Kinect sensor (NASDAQ:AAPL)

An interesting move by Apple, which has reportedly acquired PrimeSense, the motion sensing technology company that was behind the first Kinect sensor. PrimeSense helped Microsoft design the original Kinect, and has reportedly been scooped up by Apple for a nice $345 million over the weekend.

PrimeSense told TheNextWeb, that it refers to the report as a "recycled rumor," adding that it "does not comment on what any of our partners, customers or potential customers are doing." Apple is reportedly after the motion sensing tech for its Apple TV, but I think we might see it gel between its TV set, and maybe a new form of touchscreen tech. Apple might not push touchscreens onto its MacBook line of products, but a motion sensing tech? Possibly.
