From his blog: Experimental PS4 Camera Tools

WARNING: These tools are still in development and may not allow for complete, if any, functionality of the camera. The PS4 camera is USB 3.0 only and is not compatible with USB 2.0 systems.


Pyusb 1.0 is required and may not be available through the package manager of some systems. Python-pip may help in installing the most recent version of pyusb:

The two cameras can be used together for depth-sensing of objects in its field of vision, akin to the Xbox 360’s Kinect peripheral. Alternatively, one of the cameras can be used for generating the video image, with the other used for motion tracking.

PS4 camera cable on the left in black, and a USB 3.0 cable on the right in blue. There is a green/white wire pair missing on the PS4 cable, this is the USB 2.0 differential pair for backwards compatibility, it is not necessary for connecting the PS4 camera to a USB 3.0 port.

Front and back views of the PS4 camera board, with microphone array attached. Back chip connected to special USB 3.0 port is labeled OV00580-B21G-1C PPU889 1322 09. Front chip connected to microphone array is labeled 5703 324A. The rear external port appears very similar to a micro USB 2.0 socket, except slightly larger and with additional connections.

Circled in red are screw holes beneath the front lens cover, if you are so inclined to disassemble your PS4 camera.
