At this year’s Game Developers Conference we unveiled Move.me, a new software application that runs on the PS3 system and gives researchers, students, and programmers access to PlayStation Move’s technology for developing apps beyond traditional gaming — physical therapy, sports rehabilitation, or education. Move.me enables anyone with a PS3 to experiment with PlayStation Move and create new applications using a PC, the PlayStation Move motion controller, the PlayStation Eye camera, and the PS3 system.
Later today, Move.me will be available as a complimentary download for members of Academia including Academic researchers, faculty, staff, and students. Interested participants can apply for the Academia Program here. For all other users, Move.me will be available later today on the PlayStation Store for $99.99.
We’re already seeing a tremendous response to Move.me in the academic community. Some of those developers with early access to the application recently gave us an inside scoop on their work. Check out the video above for more details.
We encourage any of you interested in developing applications to check out the Move.me webpage and the new forum on the Move.me community page. This forum will serve as the Move.me hub, giving researchers, students, and other programmers a place to share ideas and discussions, as well as to post video demos for showcasing the applications they create.
Do you have a great idea you’d like to share? What are some of the Move.me applications you’d like to see? We’re very excited to make this application accessible to you all and we’re looking forward to seeing the great applications you make with Move.me.
