New Patent

A new patent has appeared describing what appears to be the Revolution controller with haptic feedback. You can check it out here. I'll be reading it also so I will update whe n I am done.

Patent

UPDATE

Well, it appears it is a controller, however, I do not believe it is registered by Nintendo. This is all very confusing. But it appears the controller has a slider, a trackball, and haptic feedback in both the analog stick and the d-pad. I know that the comments under this post will describe it better because people are alot smarter than me at figuring patents and such out.

Hey, I used to write patents for Motorola. I looked at the technical documents and the design of it is clearly a Nintendo design. Though, it's registered to IMMERSION, who specializes in force feedback technology. So, is Nintendo pairing up with them for the new controller? Also, look at the design, if that's the controller, the button layout is not the best for twitch fighting games. Looks like they're not learning a lesson. Unless using ON, you can look like a moron in your living room punching air and trying not to fall into something.

Well a blog by KingDea said a trackball instead of a C stick and he also states Feedback technology where it can force the controller left like if an explosion blows up on the right in a game the controller shifts left.

Nintendo has partnered with Immersion. And you can see that many patents filed by Nintendo recently, have Immersion as the people who invented it. So this is definetly worth looking into!

I don't believe this for a second, because for starters the pictures show it connecting to a computer. Two I think this would be a horrible idea for a controler and I think Nintendo will be smarter than to use an idea like this.

I found this one interesting also...FOUND THIS AT U.K./EUROPE PATENT OFFICE PAGE...[http://v3.espacenet.com/textdoc?DB=EPODOC&IDX=US2005130744&F=0&QPN=US2005130744] ALSO FOUND THE SAME PATENT AT U.S. PATENT OFFCIE PAGE (http://appft1.uspto.gov/netacgi/nph-Parser?Sect1=PTO2&Sect2=HITOFF&p=1&u=%2Fnetahtml%2FPTO%2Fsearch-adv.html&r=8&f=G&l=50&d=PG01&S1=nintendo&OS=nintendo&RS=nintendo)
both these patents the one I have given you (two link above) and the one you gave in the previous post are made on the same day 16-June-2005?...mere coincidence?...although the patent you mentioned doest say NINTENDO as 'the applicant' The one i mentioned DOES say NINTENDO as the 'applicant'...so thats where it becomes a mystery?...but this is interesting?...the patent you showed..has articulating arms?...and I typed the word nintendo into the search of US patent office page...and this is one of the patents that came up...which also happens to have articulating arms mentioned..but it is the OTHER things that are mentioned inside this patent that i am really excited about wether or not its actually nintendo that made it...
also these are all patents that show up when I type NINTENDO into the US patent office search engine... the link...
