Sony seems to be patenting everything it can at the moment and now another has emerged, which some are already calling the PlayStation EyePad.
The patent, discovered by Gamechup.com, stems from 2012 and says that while the PlayStation Move is useful for many types of games such as shooters and dance games, there are some applications where an alternative device may be more suitable, therefore this device seeks to solve this problem.
Looking at the picture and the description, the new device has the form factor of a tablet and includes a camera on either side of the device. This allows the 'Eyepad' to generate a 3D space from which you'd be able to play motion controlled games or use for other purposes such as Eyepet and perhaps even games such as Wonderbook.
The 'Eyepad' seems to be invented with the PlayStation 3 in mind, simply as an alternative to PlayStation Move. It does contain a touchpad much like the rumoured controller for PS4, so maybe with this creation Sony has PC style games in mind such as RTS titles and the like.
Of course this could come to nothing or possibly has already been discarded by Sony, but it's certainly interesting to see what problems Sony are trying to solve.
