Sony is not one to be left behind eating especially if the dust is coming from Microsoft. At this years E3 Microsoft announced Project Natal to the world and its many features. One of Natal’s big features will be to recognize your face, and log you into Xbox Live automatically thought its camera. Sony Europe’s Head of Developer Services, Kish Hirani, announced yesterday during the Develop conference that the PlayStation 3 would soon also support this facial recognition technology, courtesy of the existing PlayStation Eye camera. The Playstation EYE apparently will be able to “detect gender and even the age of the face, separate facial features such as the nose, eyes and ears, and even detect whether you’re smiling or not.” Kish Hirani aslo announced that the Playstation 3 will soon be able to do “Skeleton Tracking”.
