Hi. I’m new and came across this post. Genuinely curious, however, about whether SpecialEffect were consulted on Logitech’s and Microsoft’s accessibility controllers? I can’t find any concrete information. Thanks in advance.

I'd love to see some sort of chest/shoulder-controlled switches. Ideally these could be adjustable in 3D to be most usable, and also not need to be made custom for each individual to keep the cost down, and thus get to more people.

Awesome things y'all at Special Effect are doing! I remember the first time I saw Rocky NoHands playing and was in awe. I think the possibilities with mouth or eye tracking will open up gaming even more to everyone. Gaming has been huge in my life, as well as, many in this forum, so let us know if you need retweets or exposure. I look forward to seeing everything you guys accomplish.

A wonderful initiative overall. Hopefully, we see more efforts at making current and future gaming consoles and PC gaming peripherals more adaptive and useable for everyone, especially those with accessibility challenges.

I'd love to see them develop some type of controller for people who only have use of one arm or some kind of VR environment for physical therapy.

We need a breakthrough in the price/performance ratio of PC components in general. A recent example of this being needed is the recent 2000 series Nvidia video cards.
