A new patent indicates the PS5 controller might read biometric data
More and more Sony patents for possibly controller designs are continuing to appear. This time, a patent filed by Sony details how a controller could measure biometric data from a player’s hand, including heart rate. This data could then be used to provide feedback to the game, such as the emotional state of the player, or even whether they like or dislike a character.
You can see some of the diagrams for the controller in the images below.
While this is interesting, it’s important to note that Sony has mentioned nothing of the sort so far when revealing details about the next-generation PlayStation 5 controller. In fact, apart from a small slip-up on a Sony website that was quickly removed, Sony won’t even confirm that the controller is called the DualShock 5.
