Virtual Reality PS3 controller
Interesting indeed. However a little hard to believe.The Wii remote has no doubt been a big hit worldwide with its completely motion sensing controls, and the PS3 is in the tilt sensing space with its pitch-yaw-roll based control scheme. But Sony may be stepping into the ring big time with a new virtual reality game control setup that utilizes a special pair of "gloves" that will track finger and palm movements.
These 3d gloves will not only track motion in space, but also use hand gestures and palm movement to create a whole new meaning to interactive gaming. Basic commands will be as simple as squeezing your fingers to pick up a gun or "pulling the trigger" like you would if you were holding a real gun. Add this to the possibility of rumble technology and you could feel the pressure of the trigger against your finger as well as the kick back of the gun.
The device will be compatible with both the PS3 and Sony Viao computers, although there is no word yet as to whether it will have more practical uses on the PC platform or if it will be strictly for gaming. One thing is for sure, we look forward to seeing what developers will be able to do with this new technology in upcoming games. Can you imaginee steering your car in Gran Turismo 5 and "shifting" gears, all without using a controller?
