Ever since we first saw back in 1999 or 2000 what would later become the EyeToy, we were intrigued by its possibilities. That interest was further piqued during a subsequent visit to Sony Computer Entertainment America R&D a couple of years later, where Dr. Richard Marks, aka the Father of the EyeToy, demonstrated the possibilities of a future EyeToy with depth perception. Imagine being able to do everything that the Wii remote's gestural controls can do--without requiring the remote--with a healthy dash of "Minority Report" on top, and you'll have an idea of where Playstation would like to go. Nevertheless, one must first take baby steps; these are represented by the EyeToy's no longer toy-like successor: Playstation Eye, which was announced last week. To get the inside dope on the PS3's newest accessory, Newsweek.com conducted an interview with the always-affable Dr. Marks.
