The lights are on
Microsoft may have a controller in the works that can recognize the person holding it.
A recently discovered patent shows an Xbox 360 controller that can recognize a player, "using a hand-pressure signature." If it can remember who you are, then it may have some memory built into it. Microsoft similar interactivity with the Kinect, but personally, I have never been able to get it to recognize me, so I am skeptical about this new idea.
People often forget that the Wii remote has a little bit of storage capacity. The Wii remote won't recognize who you are just by touching it, but you can transport up to 10 Miis to another Wii console using the remote.

Remember that article about the controller with the joysticks that pulled the skin on your thumbs to enhance the gaming experience? what if they put that on the back of the controller and used this tech on is as well. The Xbox 720 is starting to sound like a pretty kick-ass console to me.
I would much prefer a controller with a greater sensitivity in the buttons especially for racers. Having more than 3 throttle options would be great (0,%50,%100). Razer has a great controller that shows how it can be done.
It could be really cool if you could use your gamertag just by using your controler. Keeping your achivements on another X-Box.

What's the point of a controller knowing who's using it...?
Ummm, I'm not too sure.
When the HELL are you going to use that? I feel like Microsoft is becoming like apple. Making meaningless cool crap.
A controller that will fulfill Kinect's promise? The irony is palpable
very cool, until gets thrown in frustration and stops working
This would be cool. This way I don't have to keep signing my brother out whenever I want to play.
why? sounds useless
And the price is?
