Apple is rumored to be in acquisition talks with Israeli fabless semiconductor company PrimeSense. According to local newspaper Calcalist, the IPhone and iPad maker has expressed interests in the company and a delegation of Apple engineering executives visited PrimeSense in early July. Calcalist said Apple has offered $280 million to buy the 3D sensor company, in the hope to embed its technology inside Apple products in the future.

PrimeSense's sensing technology, which gives digital devices the ability to observe a scene in three dimensions, was used in the Microsoft Xbox 360's 3D-motion tracking Kinect sensor.

PrimeSense's 3D-scanning technology is currently used in more than 20 million devices around the world, and this includes sensors that can be used in both smartphones and tablets. PrimeSense's technology is also used in 3D scanners, such as Matterport's 3D scanner which is used to create full-color models of rooms.
