Rumors of Apple purchasing the Israeli tech firm PrimeSense has surfaced again, this time, according to an Israeli newspaper Calcalist (via MacRumors), the deal is on the verge of being completed. PrimeSense is, of course, the foundation technology behind Microsoft’s wondrous Kinect body-sensing camera.
The report claims Apple has agreed to buy the firm for a cool $345 million, and an official announcement should be coming in the next two weeks.
AllThingsD corroborated the news as well, reporting additionally that final details such as liquidity preferences have yet to be worked out.
Previously, Apple had expressed interest in motion-sensing technology to be used with products such as appliances and in vehicles, however the company’s main focus with it would be to implement with its oft-rumored Apple TV, which apparently is seeing countless delays due to content negotiations with providers.
