After iPhone 5S, the next flagship device from Apple will undoubtedly be the iPhone 6. The iPhone 6 is nearing the release date. Recent reports claim that this new device from Apple will feature gesture-detecting sensors much like that of Kinect controller of Xbox. Indeed, this has emerged as an alarming reality for the iPhone 6 since Apple has apparently acquired the firm that has built this cutting-edge technology.
If a recently released report from news major Reuters is to be believed then PrimeSense is an Israel-based chipmaker and it is one of the companies to have made it to Apple’s folio, . PrimeSense majorly develops three-dimensional sensors that find applications in mobile devices as well as home appliances. This has created a possibility that the gesture control feature will also make its way to the Apple TV, iPhones as well as iPads, particularly the next-generation models.
The deal between PrimeSense and Apple is pegged to be at a whopping 345 million dollars as per the report released by Reuters. Reuters pointed to Calcalist, Hebrew financial daily as its source for this new information.
Some other high-end devices also feature Kinect-like capabilities. 3D scanners are one of the advanced devices that use the Kinect-like capability and PrimeSense has a strong presence when it comes to developing such capabilities.
There is a high possibility that this advanced technology will be shifting to Apple from Microsoft at the beginning of the coming year. However, nothing has yet been confirmed by the tech giant, as well as by PrimeSense.
For now, it is clear that the PrimeSense buyout or the incorporation of gesture-control capabilities to the future devices of Apple are being viewed as mere rumors and speculations. It is also being stated that the acquisition is directed more towards the planned improvement for the Apple TV.
