Anyone who's ever manned the average white collar job would know that you'd spend most of the work hours with your hands practically glued to the mouse and the keyboard. But for patent examiners at the European Patent Office (EPO), that's a thing of the past - all the tedious PC work they have to do, they do in hardcore gaming fashion. Instead of the usual tools of the trade, they prefer to work with "commercial game controllers" a.k.a. the DualShock 2.
That's right. The PS2's trusty controller is such a hit that even bureaucrats actually use them for work. Whenever they use their fancy EPOQUE database system, they do so like they're flipping through an in-game menu, which would probably feel like they're playing a game while working.
They didn't go into the specifics as far as controls go, like which button does what, if they enter their user IDs in Circle, Square, X, X style as if they were game codes, or if the controller vibrates when they get an IM or a fatal error. Now that's a fun way to work.
