A new Sony patent has revealed a bizarre technology that the company might be working on. Apparently, the brand might be working on a banana as a possible PlayStation 5 controller.

According to a GamesRadar report, the Japanese tech giant has recently a patent for a new controller device. A patent can carry futuristic or interesting never before seen inventions, but this fruity take on a PS5 controller seems a bit out of place. Looking at the image posters provided by the company, the controller appears to be an actual banana as the firm states that “It would be desirable if a user could use an inexpensive, simple and non-electronic device as a video game peripheral.”

The description of the original patent filing also reads the “The present disclosure seeks to address or at least alleviate some of the above-identified problems.” To tackle this issue, the company is working on a solution that will allow “non luminous passive object being held by a user.” This implies that we might be able to see the application of the controller on other objects as well, like a pen, pencil, orange, or even a banana.

Unfortunately, it doesn’t seem like the company is actually working on such a product, but stay tuned for more updates.
