Microsoft announces Xbox Adaptive Controller for players with disabilities

Microsoft has announced the Xbox Adaptive Controller, an Xbox controller designed for people with disabilities. The device was leaked earlier this week. It has two large programmable buttons and 19 jacks that can be connected to a variety of joysticks, buttons and switches to make it easier for a wide range of people to play games on Xbox One and Windows 10 PCs.

"I can customize the How I interact with the Xbox Adaptive Controller to whatever I want, "says Solomon Romney, a Microsoft Store employee who was born without fingers in his left hand. "If I want to play a game completely with my feet, I can". I can make the controls fit my body, my wishes, and I can change them at any time I want. You plug what you want and you will go. It does not require time to configure and use it. It could not be simpler. "

The focus is on connectivity and personalization, with players able to build a configuration that works for their capabilities and needs, it will not be an all-in-one solution for many games, but through the use of peripherals and the reassigning buttons at the Xbox system level, the possibilities could be endless.

The Xbox Adaptive Controller will cost $ 99.99 and continues sales later this year.For more information on device design and development, go to Polygon .
