As for the design approach of Leonardo, the designer of Sony Interactive Entertainment So Morimoto stated that:

Project Leonardo is part of the PlayStation 5 product family and is based on the same design concept. We were inspired by the idea that all players enjoy the world of PlayStation together. Our team tested over a dozen designs with accessibility experts, looking for approaches that would help address key challenges to effective controller use. We ultimately settled on a “split controller” design that allows for near-freeform left/right stick repositioning and can be used without needing to be held.

Project Leonardo is still under development and Sony continues to collect feedback from users to build the best possible controller to allow gamers with disabilities to fully enjoy video games on PS5. We just have to wait for more information about it to find out more.
