Next generation Eyetoy

Gamespy are reporting on what appears to be a very impressive presentation by Richard Marks (of original eyetoy prototype fame) on the future of eyetoy-like interface devices for the next generation of consoles. by using infra-red pulses, contours and objects can be very accurately mapped and a lot of the issues with current-gen eyetoy would be ironed out. To the extent that a skeletal animation system can be driven by motion captured in realtime by the camera! as the article says, it seems the future is nearer than we thought.
