Sony reveals sweet Vita AR Pong game, Magnet

Interesting augmented reality tech shown at GDC

Sony has revealed an impressive new augmented reality game for Vita called Magnet.


The game, uncovered at GDC, essentially turns your Vita into a paddle in 3D Pong game, with two players batting a ball back and forth in what appears to be the real space between them.

The game uses a red strip covered in a distinctive pattern made up of PlayStation symbols, which the AR software uses - via the rear camera - to determine the position of the ball and the Vita as it's moved around.

Siliconera snapped the above picture of two GDC attendees giving it a go. It's apparently still a working title and no release was announced.
