New Scientist: When Microsoft revealed the Kinect gaming device, which uses a depth sensor created by PrimeSense, various other companies began developing novel applications for the sensor. One company is using it to monitor shopper behavior in front of store shelves and to map where people pause or pick up items. Another company is using the sensor to make standard television and computer screens “touch sensitive” by detecting hand gestures in front of the screen. The sensor is also being used for quick, 360° three-dimensional room mapping and for creating virtual changing rooms, where people can “try on” clothing using a 3D model of themselves. PrimeSense also has developed a smaller version of the depth sensor that could be included in mobile devices as early as 2014.
