This clever Sony patent could mean the end of pesky away-from-keyboard timers if it goes into testing.

Ever had to drop your controller while playing one of your favorite FPS games to answer the door, only to return to find your character sprawled dead on the ground cruelly slain by some hidden enemy? What if there were a way your controller could pause the game for you simply by putting it down?

This is what the makers of the “method of detecting idle controller” (opens in new tab) patent are gunning for. The patent, submitted to Sony in 2021 and published this year on November 3, suggests using a combination of existing motion sensor technology and camera feed information to add a feature to the DualSense Wireless Controller which would autonomously pause games when the player set their PS5 controller down.
