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.

This doesn't seem useful at all... people don't always hold their controller the same way, when I first pick it up I'm more relaxed and don't really have a set way of holding it. Maybe you'll always hold it a similar way when your in an intense game, but it will probably try to detect you before that.
Hmm very interesting. I'll have to look more into this.
Kind of a cool concept, until it continuously signs you in as the wrong person.
Is that drawerering to scale? Either those are some finely manicured tiny hands or that new controller is huge.
this is interesting. I'd like to learn more
Controller: "Hello Jim, I recognize your sticky fingers. May I suggest less porn and more dating?".
Now, that would be awkward.
Cool, if its anything like the Kinect, not sure if they can pull it off.
Yet another breakable product by Microsoft.
I would've liked more information to be honest but this is still cool.
It can tell your heart rate during a game! It would be cool perk seeing an enemies hear rate during a cod match!
I don't see how or why this would ever matter.
