Leading motion control technology developer Canesta has announced it has joined an agreement to be acquired by Microsoft.


Canesta has developed 3-D motion tech for companies such as Honda and Hitachi, and contributed heavily to the development of natural user interfaces. This obviously puts them in good company given Microsoft’s own investment in Kinect.

“This is very exciting news for the industry,” said Canesta president and CEO Jim Spare. “There is little question that within the next decade we will see natural user interfaces become common for input across all devices. With Microsoft’s breadth of scope from enterprise to consumer products, market presence, and commitment to NUI, we are confident that our technology will see wide adoption across many applications that embody the full potential of the technology.”

Microsoft and Canesta haven’t revealed details about the deal, but the acquisition should be finalized by the end of the year.
