Sony Patents 3D Virtual Reality Controller For The PS3


Sony has patented a 3D controller for the PS3 and Vaio PCs that responds not only to your wild, flailing movements, but also to your hand grip and applied pressure. As the drawings so wonderfully illustrate, the controller’s held in the palm of your hands. There’s a tactile response, too, so you’re able to feel the game, so to speak. I bet Sony’s real happy it finally settled with force feedback “inventor” Immersion a few weeks ago.

The most important information — will this patent ever see the light of day as a real product — is as of yet unknown.
