Beyond Kinect, PrimeSense Wants to Drive 3D Sensing Into More Everyday Consumer Gear
Sensors were the backbone of so many products at the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas. You could argue, then, that making them smaller, cheaper, and better are lynchpins for the consumer-electronics ecosystem. And PrimeSense hopes to lead the way by making 3D sensing devices that are more efficient, affordable, and smaller.
PrimeSense made the 3D-depth camera sensor chips in Microsoft's Kinect motion-sensing system for the Xbox 360 in 2010. That became a huge hit, but now PrimeSense's next-generation 3D sensors, dubbed Capri, can fit into devices that are 10 times smaller
