Soon laughter could aid your PlayStation 3, at least that's according to the patent filings by the corporate giant Sony. Recognition software can pickup gamer emotions.
It works through identifying body gestures and can even track group interactions, like high fiving your pal. A diagram shows a camera and microphone attached to a PS3 console.
The patent filing itself doesn't limit Sony's desire to see this spread just to the PlayStation 3 console. Apparently the technology, asreports, can also detect sadness, excitement, anger, joy, interest, and even boredom.
Could player emotions help shape the direction of game progression? Interesting.
