Tired of letting onscreen avatars do all the heavy lifting? Sony’s new Eyetoy accessory makes you the star of the game. Essentially a webcam gussied up with some effective motion-tracking software, the Eyetoy displays your picture on the screen where you can interact with objects using body movements. The unit comes with a package of surprisingly compelling minigames so you can whup your friends at such activities as soccer ball kicking, UFO juggling and the inevitable boxing and kung fu.
