Sony has patented a brand new movement controller design that might be for the PSVR 2.
Printed by WIPO (by way of 91mobiles), the newly printed patent is for a controller machine, formed equally to a Wii controller, with finger-tracking sensors that may decide which consumer is taking part in and the space between the controllers themselves.
“This controller machine is worn on the hand of a consumer and contains: a plurality of sensor models that detect the fingers of the consumer; and a sensor assist half that helps the sensor models,” the patent description reads. “The sensor assist half helps the sensor models in order that the space between adjoining sensor models could be modified.”
Based on the patent, the controller will function a strap for the wrist, a set off button on the highest after which a protracted, vertical strip with the finger sensors, so when a participant’s hand grasps the controller, their fingers cowl the sensors.
If this the the design of the brand new PSVR 2 controllers then it is welcome information, as we will likely be completely happy to see the again of the Transfer’s colourful orbs. Plus, these streamlined gamepads ought to be extra correct at detecting in-game interactions as a consequence of its finger-tracking sensors.
Making ready for PSVR 2?
Whereas this clearly will not be the PS5 controller, it’s very likely to be the new motion controller for the PSVR 2 – replacing the current Move controllers.
While Sony hasn’t officially confirmed PSVR 2 is in the works, there are plenty of rumors that suggest a new PSVR headet will launch for the PlayStation 5. Rumors suggest the PSVR 2 may even have eye and movement tracking, although the patent that suggested those features also claimed that the new PSVR controllers may have built-in cameras – which we haven’t seen here.
We can only really speculate until Sony officially confirms PSVR 2 is in the works, but this patent certainly gives us a lot to think about.
