Sony just unveiled their newest Playstation motion-controlled interface at the game developers conference in San Francisco. The new system is now officially called Playstation Move and uses motion sensing technology similar to the Nintendo Wii. The Move controller sits in the players hand and controls the on screen interface by being moved around in real space. This wand-like controller features a glowing sphere on its top that comes in a number of colours to differentiate the remotes. The sphere is also used asa method of tracking the remotes through the system’s camera. The remote is also accompanied by a more standard controller that is used in the player’s other hand for additional action such as navigation. The system claims to be extremely accurate thanks to its three-axis gyroscope, three-axis accelerometer and a terrestrial magnetic field sensor. The new system will be released later this year.
