Apple to buy maker of first Kinect sensor?

Rumors are speading online that Apple is in talks about a possible buyout with PrimeSense, the Israeli firm that supplied Microsoft's first Kinect sensor.
One of the developments coming out of PrimeSense is a smartphone 3D sensor, which is likely what Apple is going to want to take into their next product lines. The rumor coming from the Calcalist is that Apple is paying $385 million for the company, while AllThingsD claims that the deal isn't over with quite yet so a price hasn't been completely set. Either way, I think that a company such as PrimeSense should be able to command a stronger premium than $385 million. However, there is a chance that they are having a hard time finding applications for their 3D sensors in volumes that they had with Microsoft in the Kinect. Apple buying them and their technology would allow for the technology to live on in millions of products instead of being allowed to drift into irrelevance.
