[Rumor] Sony patent shows how Dualshock 5 will measure heart-rate and sweat secretion (biofeedback)

According to a new Sony patent, the new DualShock 5 will feature sensors to collect biofeedback from the user’s hands.

This biofeedback will be used to modify user experience and, again, according to the patent, the DualShock 5 would allegedly gather info about player’s heart-rate and sweat secretion. These new sensors will be located on one or both sides of DualShock 5 grips.

The patent, however, does not mention how player experience will be affected thanks to the biofeedback. The patent does mention images captured of the user, so PlayStation Camera could be involved in the experience.

Lastly, the patent also mentions that biofeedback is also designed to work VR.
