Sony Patents Multi-Part Motion Tracking Controller
« on: November 03, 2008, 02:44:13 AM »
Sony has filed a new patent describing a new Playstation 3 controller the employes "hybrid video capture and ultrasonic tracking."
 
According to the patent filed, the system will track the movements of "one or more" controllers in a 3D space. "The ultrasonic tracking system analyzes sound communications to determine the distances between the game system and each controller and to determine the distances among the controllers", reads the patent's abstract. "The distances are then analyzed by the game interface to calculate the depths within the capture area for each controller."
 
The new controller comes in as a pair of ice cream cone-like devices that can be attached together in a variety of positions. One configuration that utilizes an add-on buttons plate resembles the Dual Shock controller, while other configuration, that has 2 controllers connected back to back, resembles Nintendo's famous WiiMote

I have a feeling that Frank is one of those kids whose mom tried to abort him in the womb with a dirty clothes hanger and failed, but not before poking him a few times through his soft, developing skull.

Yes it is, I wonder how it will handle. I doubt I will ever use it though unless one of my friends decides to buy it.

And to answer the previous question, anything goes with DOVEY's asshole, after all that has come through it, it must be made of stone by now.
