Todays European PSN Store update includes PlayMemories, a free application that allows you to view photos in 3D. Since not everybody has a 3DTV or a 3D Camera you can also watch regular photos (as of today called “2D photos”).
Now it’s easy to explore and enjoy 3D panoramic images on your PlayStation®3 and 3D BRAVIA™ or 3D-capable TV.
PlayMemories is a new application for PS3™ that lets you organize and view 3D still images captured with the growing range of 3D-compatible cameras by Sony.
Available for free download from PlayStation®Store, PlayMemories offers a whole new experience for PS3™ users to view their collection of 2D and 3D photos. Select a picture and zoom in or out using your DUALSHOCK®3 or SIXAXIS™ wireless controller: it’s easy, intuitive and fun.
There’s a growing choice of 3D-capable digital cameras from Sony. 3D Sweep Panorama captures extra-wide 3D scenes: just press the shutter button and sweep the camera from side to side. Cameras offering 3D Sweep Panorama currently include the NEX-3/NEX-5, Cyber-shot™ WX5 and Cyber-shot™ TX9, plus the new α55 and α33 translucent mirror cameras.
PlayMemories is available as a free download from PlayStation®Store from late September 2010.
Now watch the vid below and try not to think of the photo analysis scene from Bladerunner 😉
