At CES 2013, PrimeSense showed off its tiny 3D sensor, Capri, which should soon come embedded in mobile devices
When the company behind the gesture technology in the Kinect came to CES a year ago to show how its 3D sensors can enable people to control their TVs with simple gestures, its execs talked about how their sensors eventually would be embedded in mobile devices, opening up a range of possible applications.
At CES 2013, that company, Israeli-based PrimeSense, showed off the tiny sensor it says will soon make that a reality.
PrimeSense’s new 3D sensor, called Capri, is 10 times smaller than its current sensor and, according to the company, the smallest in the world. The design, says PrimeSense, allows for improved capabilities that it says will soon find its way into PCs, tablets, laptops, phones, various robots, and much more.
