Note that Apple already has a patent on the 3D Machine Vision technology used by Microsoft's XBox Kinect. Since Microsoft has a license to all of Apple's technology with the stipulation to not copy Apple, Microsoft and Apple are getting along. With this purchase, Apple further controls the 3D machine vision technology. It may thus use it in future products. Of course this acquisition will block Samsung's attempts to copy Apple.
