Rumored PS4 technology could cause side effects
Another week and another rumor for the PlayStation 4, this time there’s a rumor that the PS4 could take advantage of an eye-tracking system, but there are concerns that such technology could cause side effects. However, as always this rumored PS4 technology needs to be taken at face value, but it’s certainly an interesting notion.
The patent filing was said to have been filed a while ago now and is for a magnetic contact, which would mean that the user would place content lenses in their eyes and the sensors on the PS4 would be able to track the movements of the users eyes. Something like this does sound a little far-fetched, but you can see that a company has already made strides in this kind of technology.
The likeliness of this technology being used in Sony’s next-gen games console is a little hard to believe, but it would certainly bring a whole new experience to gaming. Just imagine being able to blink or move your eye in order to control different aspects of the PlayStation 4, such as the menu system. However, we’re told that there could be other devices that could hang around your neck in order to complement the contact lenses.
What worries us is the possible side effects that comes with wearing contact lenses, because users often suffer from an aggravation, which means that Sony would need to learn about ophthalmology. Then there’s the legal side of things, as we’re not certain that Sony would come off too well if parents decided to sue because their children had caused themselves an injury to their eyes while trying to place the contact lenses in.
We’re sure that contact lens wearers will be able to come up with a whole lists of reasons why such technology for the PS4 would not be a good idea, come to think of it how would contact lens wearers be able to use this technology?
Do you believe that this would be viable to use in the next PlayStation, or would you much prefer the likes of a DualShock 4 controller or even both?
