Sony has released a new trailer for its augmented reality experience PlayRoom, which comes pre-installed on all PlayStation 4 units.

PlayRoom uses the PlayStation 4 DualShock 4 controller and PlayStation Camera ”to turn the area around you into a technological playground.” A list of the software’s features can be found below:

  • 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.

Matthew Bennett, Associate Editor
Matthew Bennett finally got his big break with EGM three years ago, following years of volunteer work for various sites. An ability to go many hours without sleep and a quick wit make him ideal for his role as associate editor at EGMNOW.com. He often thinks back to the days when the very idea of this career seemed like nothing but an impossible dream. Follow him on Twitter @mattyjb89. Meet the rest of the crew.
