In the filing, Sony uses, um, a banana (below) as one such item that could be used as a gamepad using this tech.The way this apparently works is that a camera takes images of whatever object a user is holding and tracks inputs onto the surface.

No joke, PS5’s DualSense might be one of the best controllers ever made. But the battery life could be a problem.
