With the PlayStation 5 console still in short supply, its successor probably isn’t on your mind. Industrial designer Junwoo Kin and his colleagues at LFiD came up with an interesting PlayStation 6 concept that show what it could, but probably won’t, look like.
Unlike Project Leonardo, the Sony DualSense Edge wireless controller is available now, as of today. The team wanted to create a personalized gaming experience that adapts to various playstyles, with many customization options. These include swappable stick caps / back buttons, L2/R2 stop sliders, button remapping, the ability to fine-tune stick sensitivity, and even an on-controller user interface to change between custom profiles.

Remember the TPS-12? If not, just know that the Sony Walkman NW-ZX707 is nothing like the very first model released, as this version features a 5-inch touchscreen display (720p), 64GB of internal storage, and S-Master HX digital amp technology, which reduces distortion as well as noise across a wide range of frequencies.

ShankMods did the latter, and Super Mario Sunshine gameplay ensued. These are the same broadcast monitors you see used in television stations as well as on broadcast vehicles, but they are missing one thing found on standard TVs: standard inputs. So, a custom monitor input card had to be fabricated, based on open source plans.

Sony debuted Project Leonardo for the PlayStation 5 at CES 2023 in Las Vegas today, and it’s basically a fully customizable controller kit designed to help many players with disabilities play games more easily, comfortably, as well as for longer periods.

L8STAR’s BM60 Mini has no problem running Android, but trying to run the operating system on a Sony CMD-Z5 flip phone from 2000 is an entirely different story. Why? It comes equipped with a grayscale 96×72 display, a mini-SIM slot, and a removable Li-ion 500mAh battery, which means running Android required replacing all of its internals.
