EyePad Patented By Sony As PlayStation Controller

It sure sounds like a cheap Chinese knockoff, but the “EyePad” was actually patented by Sony in Europe.

The EyePad looks like Apple’s famous iPad tablet with extra buttons on both sides. However, it is not meant to be another tablet. The EyePad is actually a new kind of PlayStation controller.

In addition to the D-Pad, buttons, analog stick, SIXAXIS motion sensors and microphone, the EyePad is equipped with two stereoscopic cameras that are able to scan objects placed on top of the controller and digitize virtual versions of them to be used in games.

The patented controller’s edges are also fitted with glowing bars so that it would be used in conjunction with Sony’s PlayStation Move motion tracking system.

But hold your horses; it might be years before a patent such as this makes it to the market. That is, if Sony decided to follow actually produce it.

What do we want?!

What do we want?! A decent PC! Why do we want it?! To use emulators and play all the games! Your mind might have been blown and you think i just divided by zero but its all pretty simple. p.s. The fight isnt over free piratebay from the corporate oppression!

Wooo, replies are back so lets get back into action. Sony has a good IP? What planet are you from, moron? Unlike your retarded *** they at least realize that they'll die if they don't change.

LittleBigPlanet? Uncharted?

LittleBigPlanet? Uncharted? Buzz? God of War? Infamous? Killzone? Kingdom Hearts? Ratchet and Clank? Resistance? I mean if you're a twelve year old such as yourself whom only cares about generic space shooters then I guess it's not for you but for everyone else, its been a pretty good line up, you "Retarded ***" "moron".

lol

The guy above and everyone below missed the point. The subject here is a CONTROLLER not games, IP applies to a wide variety of products not just electronic games, silly beans.

No, the subject of the

No, the subject of the ARTICLE was a controller. The subject of the discussion the ****** three posts above started (Anonymous @ February 18, 2013 - 4:09am) was about Sony's IP. I know following discussion can be hard, but try to keep up so you don't look silly.

actually all the titles you

actually all the titles you just mentioned are meant for teenagers or retarded adults (beside uncharted maybe). Playing killzone (halo clone to compete with microsoft) or any other fps with thumbs on a console gamepad is just sad and says a lot on the state of gaming for the mass. The retarded joke's on you. Fck we're in 2013.. get a fcking pc and start gaming for real while you're at it.

No, 'actually' they're meant

No, 'actually' they're meant for people who like to play games and have friends who like to play games with them 0_o The **** is wrong with you? Sorry, I forgot games are >serious business< and if I'm not lonely and addicted to WoW, wanking off to avatars in LoL or DotA 2 or spend my day collecting hats in TF2 I'm not a real, mature gamer, I'm just a kid or a 'retarded *****' for having fun or engaging in games with intellectual or philosophical themes. Thanks for clarifying that, I cant wait until I'm twelve like you and I can be a real *****!

"a virulent amount of truth"?

"a virulent amount of truth"? That doesn't even make sense! Are you autistic or something? Does it really bother you that much that there are millions of people that enjoy games you can't or don't play? Why? What is your problem? Just because people enjoy something fun or different it doesn't make them retards or children, and definitely does not make you any better than them.
