Looking for even more efficient and exciting ways to enhance the video game experience for avid gamers, Sony apparently filed a patent application for a certain type of material designed especially for PlayStation controllers.

Essentially, this new design would mimic what is occurring during the gameplay and change its temperature to match it. For example, if a gamer is playing the protagonist who is trapped in a small area with a fire roaring around them, the controller would raise its temperature – not too much, mind you – but enough to be noticeable to those who are paying attention.

In accordance with the PlayStation 5’s DualSense Edge controller which allows for higher sensitivity during the gameplay, it was only a matter of time until something this advanced made its way in the gaming sphere.

We can also hope the integration of these new materials will make for a longer-lasting lifespan with this controller. The evolution of gaming is progressing much faster than anyone could have imagined. It will be amazing to see what games will look like 10 years from now.
