Sonyâ€™s recently issued a new device patent on a Hand-Held Computer Interactive Device which details the (PlayStation?) controller. The wireless controller patent is even dated before the Wii remote controller patent, so Sony and Nintendo have been looking into alternative control methods for a while now. Remember, Microsoft has also been testing Xbox 360 motion-sensing controllers.
Sonyâ€™s controller is designed to fit in the palm of the hand and work with the userâ€™s fingers. As the user squeezes the device the pressure applied on the controllerâ€™s sensors is detected generating commands for system or game interaction. The controller is designed to detect both the userâ€™s hand movements as well as squeezing action. Based on the patentâ€™s description, the controller could use Bluetooth technology as well as vibrational or tactile response. Sony also designed dual wireless independent hand controllers.
