Silicon Era uncovers a patent, filed by Sony, for using everyday objects as game controllers.

Sony details a system where a camera can dynamically map an object -- any real world object -- for use in a video game. The illustration has a U shape block, but the patent outlines other example objects "include items such as coffee mugs, drinking glasses, books, bottles, etc." While these are given as examples the object mapping system is not limited to those objects, it can identify any three dimensional object.
