Submission + - A simple DIY game controller for people with physical challenges (hackaday.com)

capedgirardeau writes: Caleb Kraft of the well known Hack-A-Day site noticed that game controllers and alternate keyboard for people with physical challenges were very expensive. Simple switches for buttons that could be made for a few dollars were running USD$60 or $70 apiece. Working with a young man he knew who loved gaming and has muscular dystrophy, Caleb created a do-it-yourself controller for people with physical challenges using a 3D printer, a super cheap micro-controller board and some simple keyboard emulation software. He is freely releasing all the 3d printer files and tutorials to make his and other controllers on a new site, http://thecontrollerproject.com/ and encourages people to also checkout The AbleGamers Foundation
