PlayStation 2 Eyetoy (2003)
More impressively, though, game developers could integrate the Eyetoy into their creations, which led to a number of neat uses. One in particular was the "cameo" system, which would take a photo of a user's face and map it onto the 3D head of an in-game player. This was used mainly in sports games.
More modern-day versions of gaming cameras include Microsoft's Vision camera for the 360; the follow-up to the Eyetoy, called simply "Eye," which features an "HD" camera; and the upcoming Natal, which shows up later on in this list.
