Sony patent application Similar to Wii U Console

Posted by TurtleGirl On February - 6 - 2012

It looks strange and slightly bizarre, but it looks like Nintendo weren’t the only ones considering mobile or controller technology not too dissimilar to Nintendo’s upcoming Wii U game console.

A recent patent from Sony Computer Entertainment filed back in 2010, shows a Titled Position-Dependent Gaming 3-D controller, and Handheld as a Remote.  The device shows a series of on screen interactions with objects on the TV, while acting as a controller. Here’s a brief rundown of how the device is suppose to function.
 

Methods and systems for using a position of a mobile device with an integrated display as an input to a video game or other presentation are presented.

Embodiments include rendering an avatar on a mobile device such that it appears to overlay a competing user in the real world.

Using the mobile device’s position, view direction, and the other user’s mobile device position, an avatar (or vehicle, etc.) is depicted at an apparently initially stabilized location of the other user’s mobile device or body.

Some embodiments may estimate the other user’s head and body positions and angles and reflect them in the avatar’s gestures.
 

Bear in mind this is an old patent application and this could be something or nothing.
