Fabless semiconductors for the consumer electronics industry
PrimeSense develops low-cost gesture-control technology comprised of a chip, a camera and an infrared sensor that enables a computer to "see" and "understand" the world in 3D. In other words, the chip allows the computer to discern depth and movement just like humans do and react accordingly. One of the company's major foci is on a device for video games that enables a player to carry out the actions of the character on the screen rather than merely pressing buttons to control it.
Exit: PrimeSense has been acquired by Apple Inc.
