Sony Interactive Entertainment's new patent mentions Dualshock 5's tracking of biofeedback such as heart rate and sweat secretion.
According to a new Sony Patent, the controller will feature sensors to gather biofeedback from the user’s hands during normal use.
The sensor on one or both sides of Dualshock 5 grips are going to track electrodermal activity (sweat secretion) and heart-rate. The biofeedback will then be used by the PlayStation 5 to make adjustments to a user’s gaming experience. How exactly will this happen and what changes we can expect is unknown.
The patent doesn’t specify the changes this system is capable of making to your experience. However, the patent does mention using images captured of the user which indicates that part of it may depend on the PlayStation Camera as well.
biofeedback information is used to select between one or more options presented in a piece of content without the user having to provide further input.
