Sony unveils motion controller at E3

PlayStation 3 wand demonstrated at trade show

Sony has conjured a new controller at the Electronic Entertainment Expo.

The PlayStation maker unveiled a prototype wand-shaped motion controller at their splashy E3 presentation Tuesday at the Shrine Auditorium in Los Angeles. The unnamed PlayStation 3 controller has a light-emitting sphere on the end that can be recognized by the PlayStation Eye camera.

The unnamed apparatus was demonstrated with prototype software that transformed the device on screen into such objects as a sword, mace, flashlight and gun with one-to-one motion control. Two of the gizmos were combined and used as a virtual bow that could shoot arrows at enemies.

Sony said the new controller would be available next spring.
