Primescense which provided the first Kinect sesor for Microsoft is reportedly being courted by a pair of rival companies.
It seems that the technology that the company can make is well sort after by Apple, Sony and Samsung.
VentureBeat translates a report from Israeli outlet Cacalist, which states Apple, Sony and Samsung have met with manufacturer PrimeSense regarding the acquisition of tech similar to that of the Kinect.
Apple specifically paid a visit to the Tel Aviv headquarters for a tour – the firm already owns a trio of Israel-based R&D facilities.
Neither Apple nor Sony has commented on the report at this point, while a PrimeSense rep gave the ‘no comment’ comment to Mashable:
"We can't comment on what any of our partners, customers or potential customers are doing and we’re not commenting on rumors."
Microsoft itself has moved on from PrimeSense in regards to the latest in its Kinect line, working with a new tech manufacturer for the Xbox One model.
I personally think that if Microsoft require you to have the Kinect Sensor on all the time while your playing a game then it is an invasion of privacy. Nowadays the hackers are smarter than ever so whats stopping them from hacking into the millions of cameras that the kinect sensor has.
Lets face it that Microsoft isn't know to be the best on security.
Let me know if you think this is big news for the likes of Apple or Microsoft is leaving it for a purpose.
See you next time
