sony just unveiled their newest playstation motion-controlled interface at the game developers conference in san francisco. the new system is now officially called playstation move and uses motion sensing technology similar to the nintendo wii. the move controller sits in the players hand and controls the on screen interface by being moved around in real space.  this wand-like controller features a glowing sphere on its top that comes in a number of colours to differentiate the remotes. the sphere is also used as a method of tracking the remotes through the system’s camera. the remote is also accompanied by a more standard contrller that is used in the player’s other hand for additional action such as navigation. the system claims to be extremely accurate thanks to its three-axis gyroscope,  three-axis accelerometer and a terrestrial magnetic field sensor.  the new system will be released later this year.

  • They launch the product as if they invented this technology, but even the promotional vid is almost the same as the wii. It really hurts…

    and that lightbulb is really ugly indeed.

    g says:
  • This is a demonstration on the difference between action (design) and reaction (marketing).
