    Sony has patented a new design which is a controller that the user builds from blocks. These units can be built up in a variety of different designs to produce different controller designs. You could build a gun shape or a bat shape with multiple different types of blocks which will then be recorded by a camera and store the shape created.

    Check out the actual patent below:

    Here are some illustrations of the actual blocks forming different shapes:

    This sure does look a little bit wacky, let us know what you think below:
