How's About A Move Controller That Heats Up And Cools Down?
Just in case you didn't know, filing a patent doesn't automatically mean we'll see a product related to that patent.
It just means it's possible...and that in and of itself is pretty freakin' cool.
Sony appears to be trying to make the PlayStation Move controller a lot more dynamic. According to a patent found by Kotaku, the Move wand may be looking to change temperature in your hand; i.e., get hotter and colder depending on the game situation. Yes, really.
The idea is that the controller will heat up and cool down based on how it is used, so if a gun is being fired rapidly for an extended period of time, the Move heats up. And if you go too far, the gun might not work due to overheating. Furthermore, it's feasible that when the controller heats up, the color exhibited in the ball at the top of the device may change as well. They might even use it for when you're searching for something, like the hot/cold game...close to a treasure chest? Hot! Moving in the wrong direction? Cold. And the idea of a biometric sensor that knows when you're hands are sweaty and cools down the controller is just WOW.
Yeah, it sounds like there are some potential safety perils involved, but we still wanna see it.
