How about some kind of universal device that detects muscle twitches and can translate them to any type of controller or keyboard & mouse input for a PC? That way, anybody that has a muscle they can contract anywhere on their body can use the device for operating a PC or playing games on either console or PC's and have it customized to be able to work with their own unique situation whichever way is most convenient for them. It should be a device that is compatible with both PC's and gaming consoles of any kind.

Gaming chair with positional audio vibration for use by deaf individuals. Separate vibration zones for audio cues coming from the front / rear / sides / etc. Variable vibration intensity for volume changes and sound frequency.

This is a difficult question! I would like to see more work done with stabilization. So...somehow working in conjunction with say, the future Neurolink to not even have to worry about muscle spasms? An implant to assist when fine motor control isn't possible.

Gaming tables that can elevate to standing height so I can stand to game as well as sitting!

I think for people who don't hear well or are deaf, a chair with implemented subwoofers, which vibrate towards the sounds of e.g. gunshots in games would be very cool. I know that there are a couple of chairs or seats, which have built in speakers - but I think they are not quite the same.

Maybe some kind of device you could hook up in a chair and make it like a "4d" experience for people to feel the game

It would be cool to see them develop a device for those without vision, like some software that automatically narrates player actions. Or maybe they could develop a game that’s entirely sound-based, which would be incredibly interesting from a game design perspective.

I don't know if this is feasible, but maybe a racing simulation chair/rig, with simpler integrated controls. I feel like many people suffering with forms of paralysis are unable to experience these really fun and immersive driving sim games, where the entire platforms move and shift according to the movement of the vehicle in the game.

These rigs have been a staple in arcades for decades, and they're such a different experience to your standard controller and tv gaming. I would hate for them to miss out on this experience. I know this isn't the type of peripheral that can be mass-produced and sold for people to use at home, but I'd love to see one at a local arcade. I think it would be a great goal to have a fun immersive racing/driving simulation with real movement and vibrations accessible to people living with a physical disability.

Here's a picture for reference.

A new VR headset would be great for development because a solid gaming PC-connected VR headset offers the most versatile collection of software for an immersive VR experience and lets you use that headset for creative and business tools.

Well I'd have to speak, in person, to a sound creation engineer. The people who design speakers and such. I feel this idea I've had for year would literally revolutionize the audio industry, especially for real 3d sound. I don't want to give it away on here but I do have an ultimate idea.

i think a controller you can control with your eyes is going to be awesome and it will help a lot of people.

A "Romulan cloaking device" that you can attach to your gaming PC to become invisible to the BORG when they finally decide to invade Earth and assimilate all carbon-based lifeforms. Oh, don't act like that can't happen.

I don't know much about the company but a girl I dated before who had, had a stroke could only use one hand for playing games. There definitely needs to be a controller that is used for multiple systems that can all be done with one hand.

this is a hard question and will depend on what disabilities to be tackled. prolly a headband with gyro or something that could detect input through head position/movement related to "normal" position. Though it may be not suitable for quick rapid input, for game with slow periodic input, such as puzzle or tycoon, may help many people that could use their hands.

I would love that the people who are blind will have the opportunity to enjoy gaming even with only sounds or even interaction with their hands.
