Lately Virtual Reality/3D game control devices have been all the rage. Wii Remote or various VR gloves come to mind.
But while Wii Remote is good at tracking your 3D hand movements, basically that's it. VR Gloves can capture a wider array of control gestures, but they are very inconvenient to use. Just think of putting them on and off everytime you want to play a game.
What if you could have a device that is as easy to use as Wii Remote, but could capture all your palm, finger and hand movements? Wouldn't it be cool?
Sony thinks so too and may soon have a 3D PS3 game controller to prove it. At least that's what their patent application for "Hand-held computer interactive device" describes.
