Sony has filed a patent (number 2006-178948) for a new motion capture technology AKA the EyeToy 2 PS3 camera.

Next-gen reports: “Basically, a camera will recognize every move and position of an object and will translate these actions accordingly to an object inside a game. Via this new technology, the 2D camera is analyzing an object in full 3D through a patented mapping technique.

Until now, more than one camera was needed to capture an object’s movement in 3D. This patent could turn out to be should be the next generation of Eye Toy, expected to debut on PS3 some time next year.” This would be awesome!
