PlayStation VR Demos

PlayStation VR is hitting shelves later this year for PlayStation 4 and the rumored PlayStation 4K aka PlayStation Neo. PlayStation VR is Sony’s attempt to capture the a share of the growing PC market.

PlayStation VR worked with the standard PlayStation 4 controller and PlayStation Move. However, Sony has filed a new patent for an apparatus that might change the way PlayStation VR controls are handled.

In an interface apparatus for presenting a force sense at a remote place or in a virtual space to a user, the number of motors for exerting force upon fingers of the user is decreased. The interface apparatus includes a first arm and a second arm for being attached to the thumb and a finger other than the thumb, respectively.

A motor includes a motor main body supported for rotation, and a rotary shaft that relatively rotates with respect to the motor main body. The rotary shaft is connected to the second arm. The motor main body is connected to the first arm so as to impart rotation thereof to the first arm.


The patent was filed at the United States Patent and Trademark Office. It sounds like the controller is attacked on your fingers and thumbs and pressure points to register commands. It is to be noted that this application was filed back in August 2013 and only came to light recently. It is possible that Sony may never release such a device.

As for PlayStation VR, is releasing in September for $399. The device is out of stock right now on Amazon. There are also a chance Sony will support PC with PlayStation VR.
