Microsoft introduces new Xbox Adaptive Controller
Microsoft has been working hard on the issue of gaming accessibility and their announcement of a new Xbox Adaptive Controller carries a lot of hope for millions of gamers with limited mobility.
The most flexible Adaptive Controller made by a major gaming company, the device can be used to play Xbox One and Windows 10 PC games and supports Xbox Wireless Controller features such as button remapping.
New Xbox Adaptive Controller designed to plug in additional peripherals
All people with limited mobility don’t face the same and only gaming set up. That’s why the Xbox Adaptive Controller allows to plug in a wide variety of external peripherals such as mouth-operated joysticks, one-handed gamepads or foot pedals.
Designed primarily to meet the needs of gamers with limited mobility, the Xbox Adaptive Controller features large programmable buttons and connects to external switches, buttons, mounts, and joysticks to help make gaming more accessible.
The 3dRudder natively supported by the Xbox Adaptive Controller
The 3dRudder foot controller finds itself logically at the heart of this new set up. Gamers with limited mobility who expect to get their feet involved in their gaming configuration will be able to do so really easily thanks to the USB port at the back side of the Xbox Adaptive Controller that enables the plugin of the 3dRudder. Once plugged in, the 3dRudder will be automatically recognized as an additional peripheral, and combinable with any other supported peripheral. This incredible flexibility probably is the ace of this new device that will enable millions of gamers around the world to experience the best of their Xbox games and Windows 10 games despite a limited mobility.
There are also USB ports on either side of the unit that map to the left and right analog sticks. Microsoft demonstrated […] the 3dRudder foot controller as plug-and-play option compatible with the Adaptive Controller.
Gaming accessibility: a priority for the 3dRudder foot controller
The 3dRudder is a foot controller that is naturally a very convenient accessible peripheral for people with limited mobility. When used as a PC peripheral, it can activate both a foot keyboard or a foot joystick for gaming purposes and a foot mouse for computer accessiblity. That’s probably why it is now a foot controller natively supported by the Xbox Adaptive Controller.
