Sony Is Looking to Turn Bananas Into Gaming Controller

Discovered in a recently filed patent.

Gamers may soon be able to turn anything into a PlayStation controller. In a new patent filing from Sony, the gaming giant is looking for ways to detect “passive non-luminous objects” being held by a user so the item can be used as a controller.

This sort of technology would turn household objects into accessories for gaming. This user input generator will work by interpreting changes in a pose through a “trained learning model” where a camera will be used to distinguish the locations of users’ fingers so that virtual buttons can then be mapped out. The best part about this patent is that Sony illustrated the proposed tech using a handheld banana controller which can be found in the tweet below.
