Sony demos PS Vita 'Face Control,' we get super creeped out forever

During the aptly named Game Tools and Middleware event held yesterday in Tokyo, Sony showed off an intriguing, terror-inspiring feature of the PlayStation Vita: "Face Control." That capability isn't inherently horrifying, but the tech demo Sony used to illustrate its uses certainly was. While video chatting with a remote friend using the handheld, players used their facial movements to control the eerie, lifeless faces of 3D avatars.

You can check out a video of the tech demo posted above. Just be forewarned: If we're ever chatting with any of you on our PS Vita, your human face is suddenly replaced by that of a virtual tiger, we're going to hang up immediately and then burn your very memory from our consciousness, Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind-style.
