Compared with traditional home video game consoles, they must be operated with a controller, and the operating interface settings are relatively limited. Therefore, Sony’s patent may be to break such restrictions, and at the same time make game interaction more flexible, and even Adding more fun, on the other hand, can even reduce the demand for the use of the controller, avoiding more e-waste problems in the future.
In addition to bananas, items including oranges, mugs, etc. can also be used
Compared with the current common home video game consoles, most of them will be equipped with a set of controllers to allow users to operate the game project. However, Sony proposed in mid-July last year and was approved in early February this year.A special design patentIn this way, users can use visible objects in daily life as controllers.
