Sony Opens Playstation Move Motion Control Tech To Researchers


Earlier this week at the 2011 Game Developers Conference, Sony unveiled Move.Me - a software application that academics, researchers, students, and hobbyists can use to create new types of software applications using the PlayStation Move motion controller as an input device on their own PCs, all via the PlayStation 3 (PS3) system.

Launched in fall 2010, PlayStation Move delivers a precise motion control gaming experience on PS3 with the PlayStation Move motion controller, which features internal motion sensors and utilizes additional tracking from the PlayStation Eye camera. With the Move.Me application, the tracking data that PS3 game developers use can be exported to the PC, providing a tool for creating new applications.

The Move.Me project could help medical researchers prototype, for example, rehabilitation applications for patients undergoing physical therapy. The Move.Me application could also lead game design students to develop to new creative concepts for gaming within the areas of 3D modeling, motion capture, and augmented reality. The application is compatible with any Windows or Linux-based PC; other devices, such as tablets and smartphones, can also receive PlayStation Move's tracking data if they can connect to a PS3 system.

The Move.Me application will be available for download from PlayStation Network this spring.

SCEA will support the Move.Me application with sample code, user documentation and corporate material from SCE Research and Development. The Move.Me application will not require the PS3 system SDK or a licensing agreement.

Sony's decision to give researchers access to its motion controller follows Micrsoft's recent announcement that it would would release the Kinect SDK after seeing what hobbyists were capable of creating.
