Patent Reveals Potential Controller Design For Google Project Stream

TODO alt text

There are some expectations in regard to Google's upcoming appearance at the Game Developers Conference in San Francisco later this month. Little else is known about hardware specifications, but the console has been likened to a "Netflix of games" powered by Chromecast and Project Stream technology. Sarang Sheth over at Yanko Design put together some excellent renders based on the patent.

Google is hard at work on a game streaming service called Project Stream, and we might just have caught our first look at some of the hardware for it - specifically a gaming controller in a newly published Google patent.

These renders were made to match a US Patent and Trademark office submission by Google for a "Game Controller". That said, there are two interesting buttons in the middle.

The controller features everything you'd expect a 2019 Google gaming controller to have including the typical digital and analogue controls, 4 buttons, shoulder triggers, a very Android-looking Home and Menu button, a G button and of course an dedicated Assistant button.

Not to be outdone, a tweet by Reps has shown off renders for what appears to be the actual game controller itself, and it looks quite... Instead of being used with a specific device, the Google controller would be used with several devices and device types - so you could have one controller that worked across a television screen, a PC, a tablet, and a mobile phone.

The patent details the functionality of the controller it has designed for the game streaming platform, including basic sketches of the gamepad's layout. The notification system could also alert users to changes in player scores, a chat message, or an invitation. It won't be long until we learn all there needs to know about Google's entry into the gaming industry.
