It was recently revealed that Sony PlayStation had patented a glove-like controller that many have speculated will interface with PlayStation VR, but now it seems the gaming giant is taking it one step further with plans to release a vape pen controller.
The PlayStation VPC (vape pen controller) is a 9 centimeter black controller that interfaces with the PS4 wirelessly via Bluetooth. It is believed that gamers will be able to use the device within games for a variety of functions including restoring health, utilizing as a whistle, and to simply get a nicotine fix while using the PlayStation VR.
“The PlayStation and e-cigarette demographic tightly overlaps”, explains Akido Twan, Vice President of Sunrise Vape Technologies, a Taiwan based electronics and nicotine distribution company who was recently awarded a contract to manufacture the vape pens.
The PS-VPC is expected to be demonstrated during this year’s E3 in June, and is expected to go to retail this November for $59.99, with cartridge refills available in menthol, orange, and peppermint for $9.99 a piece.
