Sony Announces Move.Me

We’ve all seen the various impressive looking Kinect hacks, and with the peripheral opening up to select people on the PC it will be interesting to see what else can be done. Sony are now entering that arena with ‘Move.Me’:

“In short, Move.Me is a server application that runs on the PS3 system. It allows anyone with a PS3 to experiment with motion controls and is officially sanctioned and supported by Sony Computer Entertainment. Move.Me sends the complete state of the PlayStation Move and navigation controllers to the PC, giving you the exact same data that licensed developers typically have access to!”

It will be provided to “academics and hobbyists” to “satisfy the need for new, innovative interactive technology in fields like academia, healthcare, and more, as well as to support new developers and inspire applications that we could never have imagined.”

  1. Great to see Sony do something a bit community spirited. I am interested to see where this goes

  2. Amazing. Is this going to be free? If so, I’m definitely going to develop a lightsabre.

    • Haha, you & everyone else. Hope people can be imaginative like they have done with kinect

      • Or how many pervs can make sex games with it.

  3. When I read the article title, I immediately though of Move Avatars… but this sounds so much more interesting…

    • I first thought it was a website … like lbp.me

  4. Yeah lets see what happens of this software, I hope its free

  5. Could be many great things, I caanot wait what people do..

  6. Cool although i’m sure i sent a tip about this recently.. oh well it’s official now :)

  7. I think this must stem from Sony and Nintendo’s lack of ideas on taking periferal based motion control anywhere further. Point, hold, move, press a button. I doubt releasing this will bring much inovation in terms of gaming or interactivity.

  8. Great to see this kind of support. Bring on the fancy YouTube videos!

  9. Funny, Move isn’t really the input device for the PC, it’s the PS3 that’s going to be the input device.
    Pretty smart, this forces hobbyists to still own a PS3 when trying to develop for Move on PC.

  10. Cool, cant wait to see where it goes
