Sony Patent Shows Why Full Body Move Control Would be Dangerous, Terrible

The PlayStation Move is an incredibly precise device that can track your hand movements in the 3D space at a nearly 1:1 level, but that’s also one of its biggest problems – it can only track your hands. So what about your legs?
-PSLS (PS3)

LMFAO.

I can imagine the tons of laughs from youtube videos of PS Move fails.

Let's leave motion gaming to Bear Grylls.

The PS2 Eyetoy actually did a great job of body tracking with games like Antigrav and the fighting one (can't remember the name)

No, but I had that one as well.

eyetoy couldn't do body tracking. It used gesture recognition like the ps eye which could track your hands and head in 3d space but not full skeletal tracking.

The ps eye and eye toy could do body track but not in 3d.
ftwrthtx  +   1121d ago
It did a great job of tracking above the waist and it could follow your arms, upper torso, and head.

Isn't that body tracking?

@zebramocha
How can they track your body without being in 3d? That makes no sense.

Neither one could do FULL BODY tracking in 3d. Eye toy couldn't and PSeye could only track the illuminated orb(or hand movement) on the end the move controller. Neither one are true 3d cameras.They mostly only detect movement. They can't distinguish limb from limb. A true 3d camera scans your whole body's skeletal frame and displays it on screen.

Ps eye can do facial recognition but you have to program for it.
@ftwrthtx
No that isn't body tracking. It is basically only tracking sudden movement.

This is full body/skeletal tracking.

Kinect is a depth sensing camera and the ps eye is based off common web cams,Richard marks talked about it in the natal on ps2 video.
BitbyDeath  +   1121d ago
Unlike Kinect though PSeye can track finger movements.
As demonstrated in games like Kinetic on the PS2.
