Sony recently submitted a patent for a new controller that would break apart into two pieces and have advanced motion control abilities. Looking nothing like the dualshock, this mystery controller resembles two ice cream cone-shaped handles with removable button faceplates. At the top of the handles are round knobs with LED lights and ultrasonic sound emitters that allow the Playstation Eye to track their movements, giving a very wide range of recognizable motion in a three-dimentional plane; way more advanced than the Wii-mote. The two handles can apparently be connected in different ways, one using the two pieces as a more traditional game controller, and another snapping them together to look more like a small staff or weapon of some sort; the latter presumably being used for motion control based games. Companies submit patents like this all the time and never do anything with them, so don't expect to hear more about this controller anytime soon. But maybe, just maybe, Sony is setting it's sights on the casual gamer market that Nintendo has embraced in recent years.
