Adapter turns power wheelchairs into Xbox controllers
The results speak for themselves. As you can see in the clip below, the Freedom Wing is good enough to handle some Rocket League. You might not want to handle a complex first-person action title with this, but it’s considerably more elegant than some solutions.
You might not have to wait to use one, either. AbleGamers is already handing out its adapter thanks to grants, and it’s working with its partner A.T. Makers to publish details for making one yourself. All told, it’s estimated to cost just $30 to $35 (besides the price of the Adaptive Controller) to make a polished device with relatively little expertise. Many wheelchair-using gamers could soon have an easy time playing Xbox titles with an interface they already know, and the technology should work for both other consoles and PCs.
