Nice idea. Though I'm sure the 'hardcore' fans will stick to building their Magic: The Gathering decks. My Dad can be a sucker for stuff like this so I might pop round if he gets it and give it a whirl.
Looks like it's using the big green arrows to track the movement. That way it can track the scale and angle of the skew on the card to adjust the 3D model to match.
I assume that as long as there are no other moving green objects it'll probably do fine...
Seems to have quite a bit of latency tho (almost half a second) which would need improving if it was going to be a direct controller input as cvg are suggesting...
It would definitely be interesting to see what else they do with it even if they can't optimise latency issue
Haha, it's Yu-gi-oh all over again. Anyway, impressive stuff!
This should enable us technically to take a picture of ourselves full on, and then mask our avatars in Home (when it comes out), with our own faces.......even if they shatter glass.
This looks good though, and if home uses this technology when it becomes available for download, I think good things will come of this..........even Sony haters will possibly see the potential which the PS Eye has going for it.
Very impressive from a technical standpoint, not too sure about the game itself though. Wont be my cup of tea I expect, but I do look forward to seeing how PS Eye implementation works out in future games. I always saw the PS2 EyeToy as a totally useless gimmick, so it's good to see this generations Playstation Eye being put to good use right from the first supported game.
