Sony looks to be evolving what they started with the EyeToy and PlayStation Eye with a next generation camera setup. It is rumored to be packed in with the machine though nothing is set in stone yet.
It contains a pair of wide-angle cameras. Each camera offers a resolution of 1280 x 720 pixels (720p).
Sound is processed by a 4 microphone array working at 48 Khz.
The device can perform some non gaming tasks such as:
- Recognize the user and log in the system
- Video chat
In the gaming field it supports head and hand tracking as new game inputs.
