Apple confirmed that they bought PrimeSense, the company behind the original Kinect, for $360 million dollars. A spokesmen told the BBC that "Apple buys smaller technology companies from time to time, and we generally do not discuss our purpose or plans."

It makes sense for Apple to try to make a move into the living room, and to compete with the Xbox One's advanced Kinect technology. I can picture Apple TV using a Kinect like device for browsing television, and Siri could easily become a part of our living rooms.

"Siri, watch sports!"
