"When you get to an underwater section of a game like The Last of Us Remastered you can hit pause, head to your nearest pool, dive in and resume playing through PlayStation Flow."
Yep, it's April Fools' Day and Sony have revealed their hoax for 2015, underwater wearable tech that allows players to play underwater sections of video games actually underwater. Announced via a blog post on their website, there's even a video of the Flow 'in action'.
Described as "a watershed moment in wearable tech" (haha ha... ha) the Flow includes four sensor pads to wear around each limb like inflatable arm bands which "track your swimming, sending real-time updates of body movements back to your PS4 via Remote Play".
The goggles meanwhile "stream game data from your PS4 via Bluetooth and display gameplay once activated poolside". There's even a PlayStation Flow Body Dryer which uses "ionizing technology to dry you within seconds."
Taking the joke further, we're surprised they didn't add a floating wooden palate peripheral for use when transporting Ellie across water in The Last of Us, seeing as that's about all you do in the water in that game.
Sony's blog post ends with a little plug for the Project Morpheus, their very real virtual reality gaming headset out next year.
Taking the gag one step further, Sony have even set up a product page for the Flow, complete with tech specs.
