Is this PS4ís secret weapon?
After the success of Kinect and its inevitable use of an upgraded version for the Xbox 720, what will Sony bring to the party? We think we know the answer.
Over 4 years ago a video appeared of a guy called Thomas Miller using nothing more than the PS Eye and a custom built pair of glasses with 2 LEDs to create an illusion that your screen was 3D. Before you start shouting that Ďwe have 3D already, this is different. The glasses have LEDs on them so the PS Eye can track the position and distance your face (with LED glasses on) away from the screen. With a clever bit of coding, Thomas Miller devised a programme that, using the tracking, could alter the angle of the graphics on screen along with your movement so that it gives a great sense of 3D. (See video below).
Not long after Thomas Miller released that video, a similar version (this time using head tracking instead of LED glasses) was found to be up and running at a public event. (See videos below).Code:http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pxT_f_F32EU

Going past the obvious parallels to Kinect, this depth sensing camera can now allow the position of your head to be tracked accurately without the need of glasses with LEDs on them. This also removes the need of the fickle head tracking system that requires perfect lighting condition for it to work. It gives us a robust version of Thomas Millerís tech that will work in the toughest of lighting conditions.Code:http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RYNTIyYIJBQ
This tech being used with the PS4 seems like a no brainer to combat the Kinect. Sony make this happen.
I've nothing to say... This would be cool, but not for me, because my Gaming-Room isn't so big What you think about it?Originally Posted by Toptuning
