The big “M” has gone in for a trademark patent over the name “Stadia” with an attached note saying that the name be fixed with a “game device in the nature of handheld units for playing electronic games for use with external display screen or monitor,” as well as an “electronic non-medical portable device for measuring, storing, transferring and synchronizing an individual’s physical exercise and activity levels including date, time, heart rate, global positioning, direction, distance, altitude, speed, distance, calories and temperature.” Physical activity game device? Sounds interesting, yes? Is it a phone? Is it a controller? Is it a wild animal?!
The word Stadia is, as many might not know, one of the plurals of the word “stadium.” So each device is its own sports area? Or each one of these devices represents a place where multiple people can play? The mention of “altitude” in the patent request filing* points toward none other than our best friend Android. *Plus the fact that Motorola and Android are best friends forever, of course. Whatever it is, it’ll be super magical you can bet!
