Sony Initiated Motion Controller Craze


During this years E3 press conference, Sony showcased their prototype motion controller. Many accused Sony of jumping on the motion controller bandwagon; following the success of the Nintendo Wii controller, and the announcement of Microsoft’s Project Natal.

However, about a year ago, when Sony was demonstrating the EyeToy’s abilities, the following technical video was created. As you can tell, the concepts shown in the video are highly reminiscent of the techniques used in both Sony’s and Microsoft’s demonstrations.
