Sony's PS3 Move.me app allows homebrew

Available spring as PS Store download.

Kinect has been pulled apart by the PC world, and now Sony wants PlayStation Move to follow suit.

A brand new Move.me application will grant open access to PlayStation Move.

"We want to see what innovative applications programmers can create using the PS Move controller, the PS3 system, the PlayStation Eye camera and a PC," reads the Sony challenge.

"Move.me is designed for academic researchers, university instructors, college students, programming hobbyists, and HCI developers. Show us how you can take the PS Move beyond traditional gaming and into areas such as: Games and tools that support kids' physical fitness and nutrition; Kid-friendly programming interfaces for computer/technology classes or individual learning; Physical therapy and rehabilitation; Sports physiology or fitness training; Music and the creative arts."

Move.me will be available this spring as an application download from the PlayStation Store. Before then, an early-seeding program will select 150 people to test Move.me. Testing appears to be limited to the US.

The small print mentions a voucher, which suggests a charge for Move.me when eventually made available.

Oh but do note: "You may not attempt to hack or reverse engineer any code or equipment in connection with Move.Me". There, that ought to stop George "Geohot" Hotz.
