Artist/Maker

The X-box Adaptive Controller was designed with access in mind, allowing users with a range of abilities to play videogames. Players can custom programme the two large buttons and plug in additional buttons, switches and pads. Users can make the controller fit their body in order to play with their feet or chin, for example, and use more than one device.

The packaging of the Xbox Adaptive Controller was designed specifically designed for access. Designed by Mark Weiser, all parts of the packaging can be opened without using your hands through the use of cloth tabs and large plastic loops.
