The PlayStation Eye (trade name PLAYSTATION Eye) is a webcam-like digital camera for the PlayStation 3. The technology uses computer vision and gesture recognition to process images captured by the device. This allows the player to interact with the games through motion and color recognition, as well as sound through the built-in microphone array. It is the successor to the EyeToy for the PlayStation 2, which was released in 2003.
The PlayStation Eye was also released as a separate product in the U.S., Europe, and Australia. EyeToy designer Richard Marks said that EyeToy was used as a template for the raw suit design.
