Kill Screen: Sony’s Augmented Reality Tech Is Getting Scarily Realistic

Kill Screen: Sony’s Augmented Reality Tech Is Getting Scarily Realistic

Sony shows off its foray into AR in these two new videos.

Kill Screen


Although Sony is betting big on VR, the engineers at Sony Japan, who apparently wear white lab coats, continue to chisel away at perfecting that other reality: augment reality. Since the days of the EyeToy, the giant tech corporation has been continuously improving their camera software that lets you stand in the same room with a fairy-like, blue-haired anime singer, or deviously freakish-looking monkey. You’re choice, really.

Today they showed off how far the tech has come with a physics demo for Vita, and it’s pretty fascinating. Their augmented creations now have convincing water physics and cast shadows when you shine a flashlight on them and know catchy dance numbers.
