Intel acquires gesture computing firm Omek: Jobs exists

intel-omek-careerIntel is hatching plans to acquire Israeli gesture recognition and tracking technology firm Omek Interactive. Intel is joining the league of firms taking on an Israeli expidition following the acquisition of Omek, following months of rumor mill grinding. The talks are understood to have begun in late March, and concluded in the last few days.

It comes just days after EMC acquired Israel-founded server storage software firm ScaleIO, and not so long after CA Technologies acquired Layer 7 and Nolio and Cisco made a grab for Intucell.

Omek is thought to have been snapped up fro $30-50 million. The firm has raised around $14 million to date, according to Israeli business news site Globes.

Omek’s employees will move to Intel’s perceptual computing division in Haifa, northern Israel.

The move will help Intel push through barriers with perceptual computing, and gesture recognition with 3D cameras will all go towards improving the overall user experience of portable and desktop devices. (Source:ZD Net)
