Rumoured iPhone 6 features could include 3D vision sensor

The iPhone 5s was just released, but rumours are already starting to circulate on the Internet regarding Apple’s inevitable iPhone 6.

Remember how Apple recently acquired Primesense, the company behind Microsoft’s underwhelming first Kinect Xbox 360 accessory? Well, the technology being developed by Primesense could be implemented into the iPhone 6, giving the still-unannounced phone 3D sensing capabilities.

This feature would allow people to take a picture of an object and instantly get information regarding its size and weight. It could also be used for advertising purposes. Say your Xbox One breaks and you take a picture of it so you can complain about your misfortune to the Internet. With 3D sensing, the camera would detect what object you’re snapping an image of and provide you with related links to that item, all pulled directly from the Internet.

In an article on adage, James McQuivey discussed how this new technology could potentially be utilized.

“A phone with that capability could perhaps take a picture of your recently expired refrigerator, for example, and be able to immediately recommend new refrigerators that would fill the exact same space, not to mention match the colors in the rest of your kitchen,” wrote McQuivey.

Integrating this technology into their next smartphone could finally give Apple a serious lead in the cellphone market again, at least in terms of functionality. Right now, while the features don’t always work perfectly, Samsung always seems to be adding the most exciting features to their new smartphones.

Apple on the other hand, hasn’t done anything completely revolutionary for some time, now.
