An interesting spot on the patent front has uncovered a Sony design for a Move controller with a central touchpad. The design apparently makes it easier to use while waving the thing around over using a more traditional joysick.

The so called ‘flat joytick controller’ appears in a number of guises in the patent, from rectangular surfaces to circles and triangles. The document describes the set up as something that “allows for three-dimensional control with a multi-positional controller”. There’s also mention of both tactile and illumination feedback.
