Apple Makes a Move to Acquire PrimeSense – Kinect Style Motion Detection Coming to iOS

PrimeSenseApple added an “M” chip to its newest line of mobile products. The M stands for motion. The chip is a motion processor that collects sensor data from the accelerometer, gyroscope and compass to track your movement. This bit of tracking technology is great for noting how many calories you’ve burned while walking around, or how fast you were riding down the bike trail. However, it is not a motion sensor in the way that, say, Microsoft’s Kinect is. You can’t use it to capture your movement while playing video games.
