A patent application from published earlier this month shows a Move controller with a larger sensor ball, swappable buttons, a large handle, and the ability to attach two controllers together to form one interesting-looking concoction.

Combining two Move controllers would allow the user to pretend its using a sword, and using two controllers at once also has the potential to track hand and leg movements at the same time.

As per usual with Sony patents, this one may never be put into production.

It is also the second Move-centric patent to come to light in the last couple of months.

The later was filed in 2011, while the aforementioned was filed back in 2008.
