Sony recently attended the Game Tools & Middleware Forum 2011 in Tokyo, where they demonstrated face recognition technology being developed by them, in the form of a tech demo. The upcoming PlayStation Vita will be able to make use of this.

 

 

The video chat tech demo above demonstrates some of the technology’s features, with two people using their avatars to communicate with each other. Sony also showed off a brief augmented reality video at the event. You can watch this over at 4Gamer, who were in attendance at the forum.
