- While gaming consoles still have a big market, companies like Sony haven’t been able to bring prices of VR and MR headsets down to really affordable levels just yet.
Japanese electronics giant, Sony, has devised a method to turn regular objects into game controllers. The company has filed a patent, first spotted by GamesIndustry.biz, which turns a banana into a controller. “The system comprises an input unit operable to obtain images of a passive non-luminous object being held by a user as a video games controller. The system also comprises an object detector and object pose detector for detecting the object and its respective pose in the obtained images," the patent application reads.
