    It looks like Sony's R&D department are working to bring some crafty ideas to the tablet world and poke fun at Apple in the process. The above pic is from Sony's most recent patent application. They are seeking a patent for a multi-sensor control surface, and the hilarious part is they are daring to call it, the EyePad. Here's a quote with some more of the details,

    From the looks of this patent, besides the obvious eye-movement capabilities, Sony maybe be pushing toward a convergence between their Playstation consoles and tablets. This should not come as a shock as they have been talking about that eventuality since last year. Regardless, if they can pull off what this patent suggests, our gaming experiences will start to evolve into something quite different in the future.

    Isn't technology wonderful? ;)

    Trolling the trolls is always hilarious.

    If Sony gets away with the name, I will just keel over laughing.
