PostSubject: Sony Patents Biometric Controllers?   Thu Nov 03, 2011 8:45 am



Sony applied for a patent revealing plans for biometric controllers. The patent states that the system will be able to read skin moisture, hear rhythm, and muscle movement and send that information to the games.

Here is the list of ideas mentioned in the patent according to Siliconera:

Weapons that change depending on how stressed you are. An increase in stress level could make a weapon more accurate or less steady, which will make it difficult to target an enemy. Sony specifically mentions a sniper situation where the weapon becomes more steady if you’re relaxed.

Tensing up your muscles to withstand an attack or charge up a shield.

A video game character whose facial expressions, movements, posture, and even voice changes depending on your biometric data. For example, this character will sweat when a player is nervous.

An adrenaline style boost which will let you run faster, jump higher, and punch harder when stressed.

A health bar that depletes more rapidly if you have a high stress level.

An attack button that changes a character’s move depending if the player is stressed or relaxed.

Background music and scenery that changes depending on your stress level. Matching music is one example, but Sony also proposes to change music to make a player more relaxed. Brightness of objects and the zoom level, representing a higher level of focus, are two ideas for scenery.

A game that adapts difficulty levels depending on a players stress level.


What do you guys think of this?

It seems like the sort of thing that could get broken easily.

Who gets that much of an adrenaline rush from games?

It's not expecting a huge adreneline rush, but naturally, you tense up at more intense parts of the game.

This would work for hard games or black ops/halo.

Exactly. Now let's see if Sony could actually go somewhere with it unlike some game companies *coughvitalitysensorcough*.
