Sony acquires patent for controller that splits into two
| by Shunal Doke |
With the current console generation coming to an end, the big players in the market are turning to increasingly innovative designs to increase and maintain their market share. Sony seems to be working really hard on this front and has recently acquired a patent that details something looks like a normal DualShock controller, but can split into two and has move sensors on each shoulder.
Here is the description of the controller as mentioned in the patent: "A hybrid separable motion controller is provided. The controller includes a first portion including a first handle, a first medial connector defined along a length of the first handle, and a first geometric object defined at an end of the first handle. The controller further includes a second portion including a second handle, a second medial connector defined along a length of the second handle for coupling to the first medial connector, and a second geometric object defined at an end of the second handle. The first portion or the second portion includes a connection sensor for determining whether the controller is in a connected configuration or a disconnected configuration."
