Silly patents: A PSP-controlled remote control car


Yeah, that’s a remote-controlled car you see. And yeah, that’s a PSP being used as to control it. Madness, surely?

Not madness, but merely a patent application coming out of Sony Entertainment Europe.

There’s not much to describe. We see a toy car being controlled, presumably using radio (or maybe Bluetooth?), by a PSP. There seems to be a camera mounted atop the car, the footage of which is displayed on the PSP’s screen.

How great would this be: at E3, Sony announces that the PSP2 will not be a video game/multimedia device at all, but rather will exclusively be used to control a little toy car. Oh, how I’d laugh.
