Interesting way to interface with the PC and play games. Wonder what the CPU overhead is to do the real time motion tracking.

Wow! That's awesome.

EDIT: Holy crap, the software is going to be free. :eek:

We have decided to release only free versions of the product. We will never charge users for the software.

This sort of stuff is the next 'Wii'. Optimally in the future, the camera tech will be 'smart' enough to tell more than 2D movement, so we'll finally have our first real swordfighting game.

Sony showed this off on the PS3 during their tech demo's. They controlled a rubber duck with a coffee cup.

The Eyetoy was a very under-used control method for the ps2

Last Sunday night, CamSpace was released to a small, select group of Beta testers.

We are working hard at perfecting the platform for a larger release (a few thousands) in the next two weeks.

Stay tuned for more updates.

Does anyone know if this work with the PS3 cam? I see it worked with the PS2 eyetoy, but maybe the PS3 is different. I wouldn't mind picking up the PS3 cam and using it for this app and the PS3 stuff :).

Hello xxxxx@xxxx!

We here at CamSpace are expanding our closed-BETA program, and we’d like to invite you to join us.

CamSpace is a small, downloadable program that enables you to play any game you want using your webcam! Use almost any brightly-colored object as a game controller, and connect it to your favorite game.

But CamSpace is much more than gaming. It’s a fully-featured object tracking platform, and it allows you to create applications that utilize these capabilities.

We chose to include you in our exclusive closed BETA program because we feel you will contribute to the CamSpace Community.

Start by installing CamSpace: http://www.camspace.com/download_installation.php

After the installation, you will need a serial key, which is available here: http://www.camspace.com/GetSerialKey.php



We encourage you to use this platform to create new and exciting applications, connect CamSpace to your favorite games, and help us build the CamSpace Community!

In addition to the robust scripting tool that comes built-in with CamSpace, you can now connect CamSpace directly into your C++, C#, VB or .NET application using the CamTraxAPI extension.

As always, feedback is greatly appreciated at beta@cam-trax.com



Thanks again for your support and interest in CamSpace,

The CamSpace Team
