New in Zooming: Sony Gets Some.September 10, 2009
The folks over at Gizmodo have a delightful article on a zooming technology that Sony has demoed for both the PS3 as well as their portable device, the PSP. From the video you can see a lot of the nice touches that we’ve come to expect of high-quality zooming implementations. Things like springs for smooth zooming, total responsiveness to the user and remarkably fast resolve time from one zoom level to the next. It truly is mesmerizing to watch.
The ability and apparent usability of the PSP (at 2:10 into the video) is particularly cool. The portable device’s navigation buttons appear to be intuitive and every bit as performant as on PS3. I can’t wait to see what people come up with after Sony ships this to developers “soon”.
