    ” Sony has Filed a Patent Application for a System that Could Turn Bananas and Other Household Items into PlayStation Controllers”

    There’s gotta be a great joke in there somewhere . . .

    1. 1.1

      You’ll be risking infringement if you try to ape Sony’s banana patent.

      That’s all I got right now…

      1. 1.1.1

        Hmm, that has a certain a peel.

    2. 1.2

      Hmmm . . . I’m wondering whether monkeys would be more inclined to play the game . . . or to eat the controller . . . (maybe play . . . until they get hungry?)

      Sony should throw a handful into a monkey cage and see what happens . . .

      1. 1.2.1

        The application was actually drafted by infinite monkeys typing randomly.

        If you use the banana controller, it changes the PlayStation into a PureeStation.

        You can tell I’m really scraping the bottom of the Donkey Kong barrel here.

      2. 1.2.2

        I can neither confirm nor deny that any simians were hurt in the AI training program of hanging such controllers above a step ladder in a cage full of CAFC simians, under the watchful (and nurturing) gaze of fire-hose wielding Supreme Court Justices.

        Sometimes you need to be cruel to be kind (at least per Nick Lowe).
