Apple purchases PrimeSense, Creator of Kinect.

According to 9to5mac and Israeli publication Calcalist.co.il, Apple has purchased PrimeSense, the company that created the original Microsoft Kinect technology for $345 Million. This recent purchase will soon allow Apple to add controls that will require body movements. Similar to what has been seen on the Samsung Galaxy S4.

Apple has been working on its own gesture-controlled OS as seen below.
Microsoft used PrimeSense’s technology for the original Kinect. They have since replaced PrimeSense’s technology for their own in-house 3D mapping systems.

Here’s a video of their technology in use.

GTA Online “We’re Sorry”

So as many of you know, GTA Online launched this pass Tuesday and many people have been having server issues, the game failing to load and disconnection issues. I myself have been plagued with the problem and I am totally bummed at the fact that I can’t get on.

On there support site they did release a statement saying “We apologize for any inconvenience, and thank you for your patience while we work to resolve this,”. The major problem of this release was that they were not expecting the popularity of the game to be so big. They did say last week that their servers may not be able to handle GTA’s popularity, also stating “We are working around the clock to buy and add more servers, but this increased scale is only going to make the first few days even more temperamental than such things usually are.”

I guess until then we will wait and see what happens.

Xbox One

Well it is not the Xbox Infinity but the Xbox one! Microsoft describes their new console as “the ultimate all in one entertainment system – one system for a new generation.” The new Xbox wants to be the one-stop entertainment solution for your living room, integrating live TV, games, movies and web services like Skype, all controlled using Microsoft’s second generation of kinetic. Its really neat, to turn the system on all you have to say is “Xbox On”. The console is always listening!

Heres a video by Tech Radar giving you a scoop on the new console.
