Sony will be working on some facial recognition software for the PlayStation Vita.
Sony showed a demo of how players could be using their face to interact with the handheld system. The video shows video chat that uses the software. The PlayStation Vita picks up on the speaker’s facial movements and then converts those movements into a 3D chat avatar. The chat windows are being generated in real time by the PlayStation Vita. Sony refers to this technology as ‘Face Control’. They hope that players will be able to use their face to control games and change viewpoints. As of yet, there are no plans to convert the demo into an actual product.
