- photo, video
- voice commands (available as well with an earset with microphone)
- depth calculation/imaging
- pad, move, face, head and hand recognition/tracking
- one of the cameras can be used for generating the video image, while the other used for motion tracking.
- OV580: Back chip connected to Aux port is labeled OV00580-B21G-1C. The OmniVision 580 ASIC is not publicy documented (without signing a NDA with Omnivision), so it seems to have been made specially for Sony (other companies using it are Mantis Vision and LeapMotion) out of the 500/600 serie of processors.
others Omnivision USB bridge solutions: PlayStation EyeToy(OV519) and PlayStation Eye (OV534).
