Hands on With Sony’s ‘The Castle’

    The tracking of the move controllers could be improved, but the idea of having working “hands” in VR is intensly exciting. It would be great to be able to shoot guns, press buttons, pull levers, and push open doors in VR without dedicated button presses on a controller.

    The PS Camera has stereo cameras that can do kinect-like body tracking (though seemingly not as well). Hopefully this will be incorporated into the mix of algorithms, as it would be great to be fully represented in the 3D world *and* have tools to manipulate.
