Sony patent filed to USPTO hints at PlayStation VR controllers/features

According to a NeoGAF report, a patent filed to the US Patent & Trademark Office (USPTO) by Sony Computer Entertainment (SCE) Tokyo, Japan, hints at the controllers and features which the company would likely bring to its PlayStation VR virtual reality headset.

The patent was filed by Sony in 2014; but was discovered by NeoGAF last week, on February 25, 2016.

Going by the patent-related details shared by NeoGAF, the patent filing by Sony specifically describes a glove-like device which would give gamers the ability to control the objects they see while they are undergoing a virtual reality experience.

The patent also indicates that the glove-like device will boast the capability to record the finger movement of gamers; and will be equipped with a pressure sensor for detecting whether any surface is being touched by the gamer.

A part of the decryptions of the glove-like device in the patent filed by SCE reads as follow: “… users collaborating may use their gloves to touch objects, move objects, interface with surfaces, press on objects, squeeze objects, toss objects, make gesture actions or motions, or the like.”
