    Sony looks to be planning a next-generation era where PlayStation 5 owners are not only consolidated for in-house gaming but also outdoor usage.

    Earlier today, the company was spotted (via LetsGoDigital) to have patented a new multifunctional controller that can be connected to other devices such as a console, smart television set, or smartphone with either an internet connection or bluetooth. The built-in touchscreen from Sony then allows the user to access features like listening to music, checking emails, sending messages, downloading and playing games, viewing images, and other social activities.

    The patent also mentions several interesting functions that can determine the state of the user. In addition to fingerprint and heartbeat sensors, the controller has a gyroscope and an acceleration sensor as well for motion control. Basically, suggesting fitness- and location-based support applications from Sony.
