Sony acquires gesture recognition and imaging software dev, Softkinetic

Belgium-based gesture recognition and range imaging software developer Softkinetic has been acquired by Sony for an undisclosed fee.

Newsbrief: Belgium-based gesture recognition and range imaging software developer Softkinetic has been acquired by Sony for an undisclosed fee. 

The purchase means that Softkinetic's time-of-flight range image sensor technology, as well as its related systems and software, will become a wholly-owned subsidiary of Sony.

Although the PlayStation creator was coy about what exactly the tech would be used for, it did explain that the acquisition was made with the aim of "developing the next generation of range image sensors and solutions, not only in the field of imaging, but for broader sensing-related applications as well."
