Once again, 3D sensor manufacturer PrimeSense denies that it has been bought by Apple

The 3D sensors made by the Israeli company allow a person to control a device by waving his hand in the air. The report says that the deal was scheduled to be signed and then announced at the beginning of the month, but was delayed by legal issues involving the company's unnamed partners.
Back in July, the same Israeli publication published a story that Apple was about to close on the purchase of PrimeSense for a price between $280 million and $300 million. The paper reported that both Samsung and Sony were also sniffing around the company.
In a statement released to Business Insider today, PrimeSense said it does not comment on rumors and called the story a recycled rumor.

Then we can listen to all the rabid Apple fans who called air gestures on the S4 a gimmick and stupid scream from whiplash as they suddenly decide its the bees knees. Especially over at BGR.

Air Gestures are literally useless. And no, I'm not biased against Apple on this one. Even when the GS4 was released I saw that it was a gimmick, the type of thing you show to your friends once and turn it off, never to be used again.

They wouldn't be such a gimmick if they worked better. Scrolling and hand gestures are hit and miss on my Note 3, same as they were on my S4, and you have to use the Samsung browser for the scrolling, which sucks.

Really? Well I dont own s4 or note3 but I have tried this feature and it work fine, no problem at all... may be those people having problem, cant use it properly... I remember my university time class mate who studied with me for 4 years but he was never able to operate MS word, so should I consider MS word a gimmick just bcoz some people has learning difficulty disorder
