ps4-playroom-tech-demoRemeber that Minority Report looking tech demo Sony showed off back at E3? According to an announcment from Sony, Playroom will come pre-installed on all PlayStation 4s.

The augmented reality app is made to show off what the PlayStation Camera and the Dual Shock 4 can do when used together. Here are some of the features players can look forward to:

  • Light Bar: This is tracked by the PlayStation Camera to create interactive on-screen effects, such as holographic panels that hover around you.
  • Motion Sensor and improved dual motors: Once your robot helper, Asobi, has beamed some AR Bots into your DUALSHOCK 4 wireless controller, you can rock it in your hands to feel them tumbling around inside. Or you can swing and sway your DUALSHOCK 4 wireless controller in a game of holographic Air Hockey, where you can stretch, twist and bend the board to gain the upper hand.
  • Touch Pad: Used for scrolling and interacting with the various augmented reality menus. You can also use this to flick objects out of the DUALSHOCK 4 wireless controller for the loveable AR Bots to play with.

Because Playroom will need to the new PlayStation Eye, those who are looking to test out the software will be out another $60.
