Microsoft to Buy Canesta, a Gesture Recognition Technology Company

Microsoft said on Friday that it was buying Canesta, a small Silicon Valley company that specializes in gesture recognition technology.

Interest in this technology has surged because it lets people control computers and other devices through hand movements and other bodily gyrations, similar to the systems depicted in futuristic films like “Minority Report.”

Canesta makes chips that, when coupled with a digital camera, gives all manner of devices a sense of depth perception for the world around them and the ability to “see” in three dimensions.

No financial terms for the deal were diclosed.
