Proving that Sony really looked at the PS3 as a system that would evolve with the times, Sony is now internally testing a few PS3 games with that awesome 3D virtual reality headset we saw back at CES in January. Who's ready for VR's return?
We've seen plenty of future tech aimed at helping the blind to see again, but a group of British researchers are working on much more immediate technology that can help people with poor vision to see more clearly.
