This past week at the PAX festival, a semi-annual expo that focuses on console, computer, and tabletop games, the Ablegamers Foundation and Evil Controllers unveiled a special video game controller for the disabled. The Adroit “Switchblade” is the first in a series of cutting edge controllers that can be customized for the user. It’s essentially a black box with 19 ports to place sticks, buttons and rumble packs wherever the user needs them. The Switchblade was originally designed for the Xbox 360, but can also be used on a Playstation 3 or a PC.
It goes to show that just because you’re physically disabled, it doesn’t mean it should keep you from completely pwning your friends.
