Impressive amount of silicon this gizmo has. NEC, AD, TI, Wolfson, etc. Vendors from all over the world! But at the heart of it all, the PS1080! A 3D image processor. Resolution to the cm in depth! resolution to the millimeter in X/Y! Impressive! really impressive! I wonder if it would be possible to know how many years or months all these took to be developed? I'm not talking about the time Microsoft took to get the Kinect rolling but of the time it took PrimeSense to develop the technology. Anybody?

Yeh, I am also interested if there is any related patent or papers for the PrimeSense chip above.

That is damn impressive stuff; sounds similar to the kind of technology movie-makers pay $$$$ for, crammed down into consumer-grade chips. Very clever.

Really cool technology. This kind of machine-human interface was not thought to be affordable now but this company has proved it. I would love to know the way they planned and executed this thing and Im sure there will be loads of very valuable lessons they would have learnt.

That link doesn't work for me. Is there another source for that file? (or similar files?) thanks!

IoT Network Shoot Out
July 16, 1pm EDT Thursday

Replay available now: A handful of emerging network technologies are competing to be the preferred wide-area connection for the Internet of Things. All claim lower costs and power use than cellular but none have wide deployment yet. Listen in as proponents of leading contenders make their case to be the metro or national IoT network of the future. Rick Merritt, EE Times Silicon Valley Bureau Chief, moderators this discussion. Join in and ask his guests questions.
