The EyeToy is a completely different technology. The EyeToy and Playstation Eye are just webcams. Sony then uses software to attempt to translate the surroundings to 3D. Of course this makes it highly inaccurate and basically can only be used for basic gesture recognition.
Kinect on the other hand uses one RGB camera and two IR cameras to reconstruct it's surroundings in 3D with much more accuracy. The idea may be the same as the original EyeToy for the PS2 but the execution is completely different.
[citation][nom]TeraMedia[/nom]The company that developed the tech for MSFT is a 3rd party located in Israel, PrimeSense. If MSFT has any patents, it would be because they bought IP from them.Sony's patent application is ridiculous. Talk about late to the party.[/citation]
Well the patent for MSFT might not be approved yet. The kinect is still a fairly new product and its patents might still be in approval limbo
