  • Bag of Rice and Duct Tape Modify Xbox 360 Controller For Disabled Use

    http://gizmodo.com/5557958/bag-of-ri...r-disabled-use

    As you know, duct tape can be used for pretty much anything, and rice fills a large hole when needed. Coupled with some Xbox 360 controller parts though, they can make a disabled chap get his game on. With a little help from Ben Heck, Evil Controllers modified an Xbox 360 controller so muscular dystrophy-sufferer Steve Spohn could play the Xbox. The joysticks and buttons are stuck to a makeshift controller with velcro, and are able to be moved about depending on whatever's most comfortable. If a game is being played where joysticks aren't needed, they can even be ripped off so they don't interfere. The wearer can also put on a t-shirt with buttons sewn into the shoulders, which are activated when the gamer shrugs.
    As you can see in the video, it's in a pretty makeshift state at the moment, but Evil Controllers has grand hopes that they'll be able to get it on the market at some point.

    That is way neat. I have tried this before with utter failure.

    I think when I demolished the footpedal and subsequently tore the contacts from the pressure sensor I was deadinthewater, but I tried to re-attach them and follow through. I will say this, he makes mounting that sensor atop that rubber membrane, creating an airtight seal look easy .

      this would have been utterly cool except xbox 360 consoles die easily.
