New Sony patent reveals new hardware, "Eyepad"

Revealed several hours ago was a patent filed by Sony for a device they’re calling the “Eyepad.” Speculation suggests it’s to include Move functionality (those shaded stripes that run the length of the device on its edges), as well as stereoscopic camera capabilities (the two dots at all four corners of the face); this is in addition to the more obvious, standard Dual Shock trappings, from an analogue stick and D-pad, to SIXAXIS control, as well as a view screen (similar, in theory, to the Wii U control pad).

We know that filing for a patent doesn’t necessarily provide hard evidence that the hardware is out there, but with the Destination PlayStation press conference coming up… well, we think it’s fun to speculate.
