Sony Patents Bizarre Pumpable Move Peripheral, Creates World’s Largest Controller

PSLS: "While the Move might not be the most successful motion device of this generation, an amazing peripheral for the peripheral could quickly turn things around. This is not that peripheral." Microsoft also patents a handlebar controller. (Playstation Move, PS3, Xbox 360)

What the heck are they thinking? Patent mining to new heights.

Just make more room under your furniture. Throw away the old wii tennis racket.

There is nothing wrong with this patent, it's just that the author is an idiot.

This is just a reconfigurable steering wheel/handlebar controller. So for a car racing game you can have it in steering wheel mode and for a motorcycle game you can have it in handlebar mode.

Hanz and Franz = win. Peripheral = WTF?

SNL could use some Hanz and Franz while Sony could use some common sense.

Oh please, all of the big three patent idiotic things on a daily basis. Most corporations do.

Remember guys, a patent doesn't necessarily mean it's going to be made and sold.

Pretty sure this concept has been shown to. Something similar that could be used as Bike handles/steering system.

Well then lets hope you're right in this case
