The lights are on
A new patent from Sony suggests the company is working on a redesigned, customizable Move controller.
Published just last week, the patent reveals images of the more ergonomic Move controller seen above. Another image suggests that the controller would feature interchangeable faceplates:
Additionally, a third faceplate is shown connecting two Move wands into a standard controller configuration:
While another image shows that two Move controllers can also be connected end-to-end, for some reason or another:
And finally, this last picture suggests that Sony is actually trying to patent stupidity:
Sony has patented a wide variety of zany Move designs, some of which have been released, and others that haven't. We'll have to wait to see what comes of the company's newest filing, but I personally can't wait to strap some move controllers to my feet and break my neck.

And I thought it couldn't get any worse.
i guess this means 100% that they are going to use them all seeing how they made patents for them.
NO. Lets just put this to bed Sony. PLEASE!
I'll need to take some yoga lessons before trying this
it looks like a *** still...
That last one is what motion gaming is all about. It's just a cheap gimmick until the game actually recognizes you doing a bicycle kick. Now I want one where I can skydive, and roll around the floor to do tricks. Just think of the reactions when someone suddenly enters the room.
Now if only they could get people to care about the Move to begin with.. So much wasted time/resources on this nonsense. The Wii captured the bulk of the motion control audience, then the Kinect captured a few more. It's a dead for Sony at this point.
