sony_ar_patent

Sony is trying to incorporate AR (Augmented Reality) to make the PlayStation experience as real as possible. This is obvious as the company has patented a new kind of transposable controller which can be configured by the player for different experiences.

The AR controller requires a camera to be enabled and the concept is that players make use of the controller to form and replicate shapes of a variety of objects for different situations in games and follow their motion respectively.

The patent includes diagrams of the controller not only being used as a shotgun, rifle, and knife but also as a humanoid kicking a football or a flying bat.
