Sony Computer Entertainment will be one of the main sponsors of the Hatsune Miku Magical Mirai 2014 show that will kick off on August 30th in Osaka, and the event will serve as the perfect venue for showing off the quite revolutionary “PS4 Dynamic Lighting” augmented reality tech that the company has recently introduced as part of its “SmartAR” suite.

The technology, that was first introduced at the Nico Nico Chokaigi 3 in April, solves one of the main problems that affects augmented reality, which normally doesn’t react to light sources in the real world, causing objects to look fairly alien to their surroundings.

The PS4 Dynamic Lighting tech allows the realistic display of light and shadow, better blending the augmented reality model with its environment.

Below you can see a render of Sony’s booth, which will also showcase the “VitaHoloPop” tech, that allows the PS Vita to display holographic images within a transparent box, and the upcoming game Hatsune Miku: Project DIVA F 2nd. At the bottom of the post you can also check out a video showcasing the PS4 Dynamic Lighting tech which was published back in April.

Hailing from sunny (not as much as people think) Italy and long standing gamer since the age of Mattel Intellivision and Sinclair ZX Spectrum. Definitely a multi-platform gamer, he still holds the old dear PC nearest to his heart, while not disregarding any console on the market. RPGs (of any nationality) and MMORPGs are his daily bread, but he enjoys almost every other genre, prominently racing simulators, action and sandbox games. He is also one of the few surviving fans of the flight simulator genre on Earth.
