A story from Haaretz
was circulating last week claiming that Microsoft was in talks to purchase 3DV
, maker of a camera-based motion sensing technology. Now, VentureBeat
has supported the claim, saying that its sources confirm that a deal is in the works.
Assuming Microsoft has gaming in mind and not creepy, Minority Report
-style desktop navigation, our feelings are mixed on it. It could be a giant leap forward if 3DV's tech were bundled with a new console, but we're not sure we'll be ponying up for another stand-alone camera while still under the watchful, dusty eye of our Xbox Live Vision. What about you?
