Sony has announced that the Playroom tech demo software will come pre-installed on every PlayStation 4 when the console releases this holiday season.

Playroom combines the PlayStation Camera and DualShock 4 controller to offer the player several augmented reality toys which showcase the power of the peripherals.

  • 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.

You can check out a video of Playroom in action below.
