Sony to Offer PS2 Camera

From EE Times

SAN JOSE, Calif. — Sony Corp. will make a video interface available for the Playstation 2 game console next year as part of a $49 option that will include an MPEG camera and about 20 game titles. The add-on is Sony's first effort to expand the audience for its its popular videogame system by creating new interfaces to attract younger and older users.

The camera's software will mix video images of an individual user with computer graphics to allow players to battle kung fu characters, play animated stereo systems or wash windows. In future games, users will wield passive colored styrofoam balls, plastic swords or gloves as a way to interact with characters, cast spells or control the action in a videogame scene....

I don't think I'll be in a hurry to get one.
