    ps3 Handicapped PS3 Owner Builds Frankenstein's Controller



    What would it take to stop you from gaming? If you said being bedridden, hooked up to various machines with limited use of your limbs, then you are a complete wuss. Just ask PlayStation 3 forum poster KitsuneYume, who built a PS3 controller he works with his entire body, including his mouth. While the setup won't win any product design awards, it allows Kitsune there access to 20 out of 25 possible controller functions using 16 switches and a joystick he controls with his tongue, all wired into a standard PS3 controller.


    The main reason I put this on the PlayStation website was to show people that even the most limited person can still enjoy console gaming just as much... anyone else. the controller was pretty easy to make except for converting the analog signals into digital signals for when I use the various switches. this took about two months to build and get working effectively.

    dont get me wrong, but it does sound a little strange doesn't it?
    he cant play with a normal joypad
    but he can make his own, with switches and soldering and stuff like that?

    or am i missing something

    again: dont get me wrong, i think it's cool that even a handicapped person can play games like any other person! it's the way it should be
