Sony Interactive Entertainment just recently published a license for a VR motion controller that look suspiciously comparable to Valve’s Index controllers, also known as ‘Knuckles. The information was initially reported by LetsGoDigital (Dutch).
All items have patents, although not all patents take place to end up being products– it’s unclear whether the controller described in the 34-page Japanese language document is indeed destined to make its method into a bonafide item of hardware, or if it’s merely an instance of Sony growing a flag in the ground ‘simply in situation’.
What’s more, it’s also unclear whether this is undoubtedly also meant for PSVR 2, Sony’s upcoming Virtual Reality headset follow-up intended for usage with the PS5 console. Allow’s make believe momentarily it is though, and also chat a little bit about the effects.
Filed with the World Intellectual Property Office (WIPO), the patent lays out a VR activity controller with embedded LED monitoring markers, or similar to how Oculus Rift S and also Oculus Quest track its respective Touch controllers.
The technological document likewise details that it could be tracked optically from the headset– once more, very Oculus-like implementation below.
