Ynet, Globes: Intel is reported to be in advanced talks to buy InVision Biometrics Ltd. for $50-60 million. Intel is looking to acquire applications which provide hands-free 3D sensors. Invision Biometrics, previously unexposed to the media, is a developer of 3D sensors which detect face and body movement and translate them into on-screen game moves, similarly to Microsoft's Kinect. Invision was founded 4 years ago with an investment of $2-3M. The company acquired 3D vision patents from the Technion, Israel Institute of Technology.
On its web site InVision says that its technology uses a stereo triangulation, multi-pattern based solution integrated with binary codes combined with MEMS technology to improve speed and accuracy at affordable cost.
