Sony Goes For Laughter Patent

Sony goes for a laughing detection patent for its PS3 Eye

It’s not April’s Fool Day is it? Sony has decided to go for the crown of Weirdest Patent for a Console. The gaming arm of the company is apparently going for a patent that detects people laughing.

Ok, so motion technology picks this up. But the question is “why?” Who knows, maybe there will be some interactive BD Live content with a stand up comedian that is in fact, live – and he’ll/she’ll get paid by the amount of laughs they get.
Outside of that, only they know, but it will be interesting to see how they put it to use.
