Sony EyePet

In the latest addition to the fast growing range of applications that Sony are developing to utilise their PlayStation Eye, we see the introduction of Sony EyePet. This family orientated application brings a 3D virtual pet into your home through an Augmented Reality style interface and interaction. As well as being able to play with your pet with real world hand gestures, you can also create objects in his virtual world through 2D drawn objects that then pop to life on-screen.

This is just another example of how Augmented Reality is being brought into our lives. I expect that we'll see a lot more applications being developed for gaming platforms such as the PS3.
