Sony has renewed the patent for the new technology. PlayStation makers like to allow cameras to embed real physical objects in video games using a 3D scanner.
The company filed the legal document in question on June 23, 2021. After reading it, the USPTO, the US agency that verifies patents and trademarks, asked the Japanese technology and entertainment company to review some details. The organization raised questions about some of its technical claims. The final version has been available since last week.

In fact, during CES 2022, the company shared the official technical specifications of the PlayStation 5 VR headset and confirmed the name of its VR controller, the PlayStation VR2 Sense controller.
