Move over, Project Natal and Wii-mote: here comes Sony, trying to break into the let’s-make-it-real movement with a new patent for image-scanning with their EyeToy camera. Oh, did you think I meant their oddly-shaped wand controller from E3?
Soon, the PlayStation 3 will get its own version of the popular Eye Toy gadget. The new camera won’t win any beauty pageants, thanks to its odd oversized microphone and bulbous head.
The giant microphone apparently does have a purpose, however, with multiple elements to help filter out unwanted background noise.
