VR/3D Controller for your Sony PS3
Posted by XanTium | 13-4-2007 12:37 EST

 
From unwiredview.com:


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.

What if you could have a device that is as easy to use as Wii Remote, but could capture all you 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.

Maybe they can use this to grab at more straws as the PS3 continues to do poorly.

I'd like more games for the controller it has now first.
