The patent describes a controller, which is similar to the Xbox 360 one and capable of reading a selection of biometrics from the user’s hand. These include how hard the user is pressing on the grip, length and breath of their fingers and width of their hand. The controller is then has the ability to send these measurements to the console, which then creates a pressure profile signature, when the controller is picked up. It potentially has the ability to sign a user into Xbox Live without further interaction. The Verge asked Microsoft about the patent, in which they replied with the following  statement.
 

A Microsoft spokesperson responded, saying, “Microsoft regularly applies for and receives patents as part of its business practice. Not all patents applied for or received will be incorporated into a Microsoft product.
