Yes! Sony made it possible to imagine.
Yes! Sony made it possible to imagine. New technology is going to allow people to use a banana or any object as a game controller.
Finally! we are not confined to use only some mathematical shape’s (circle, triangle, square) in the form of remote control; Sony has filed for a patent that details a method of turning any object, either banana, bread or a bottle, into a game controller. The patent application described the method of turning a banana into a PlayStation controller. Basically, this technology turns an object which can’t produce its own light “nonluminous passive object being held by a user” into a controller, overlaid virtual buttons on top of it, with a banana being detailed as the example, a camera could “detect the object so they could detect user’s finger in the obtained image to coincide with the location of the virtual buttons”. The idea is to use any object or fruit as a video game controller; this will give an amusing and different look to the PlayStation controller. It would be desirable if a user could use an inexpensive, simple and non-electronic device as a video game peripheral, “says the patent application”. The disclosure seeks to alleviate some of the identified problems; initially, the application may seem unusual. However, Sony trying to solve a problem with this technique; as the designers note in the application, the existing controller can be a barrier to entry because of technical complexity, but as you know, some complexity is always there as a part of the design in technology. Well, as in the case with any patent application, there’s no guarantee Sony will ever commercialize, however according to The Indianexpress, they confirmed that they are working on a new PlayStation VR headset for its popular PlayStation 5 console. The new next-generation VR system will offer conspicuous leaps in performance and synergism & even “greater sense of presence”. The VR headset for PS5 will also feature a new controller inspired by the PS5’s Dual sense and require only a single cord to associate. Companies with new technologies are making intensive efforts to overwhelm society in the form of gadgets and sometimes with antique design of games and game controller.
