The DualSense game controller works with the PlayStation 5 console for impressive performance with just one hand.
With the explosive growth in the popularity of video games in the last few decades, gaming controllers have become more and more complex. With so many buttons and functions, they can be challenging for those with physical constraints.
Designed by Akaki Kuumeri as an accessible peripheral for use with the PlayStation 5 console, this one-handed DualSense controller delivers impressive performance with just one hand. Thanks to a series of 3D-printed components that have been added onto the namesake controller to help players access all the various buttons with a single hand. This is effective for those with physical limitations or limited mobility to enjoy some of their favorite games.
The game controller contains a series of activators for buttons that move the side they are pressed on, allowing the user to operate the game with just one hand. Additionally, the joystick is movable by utilizing a stationary surface nearby the user, meaning that gamers who are unable to use their left hand can still operate the joystick.
The DualSense game controller is an accessibility-focused design, but it’s also a great-looking accessory for anyone looking to make the most of their next gaming session. And with powerful performance that puts controls at your fingertips, you can use this sleek controller to push every game to its limits.
So, what’s the big deal about this single-handed gaming controller? Designer Kuumeri provides the files you need to 3D print the part yourself or through a 3D printing service, that's all you need to have your peripheral.
Kuumeri’s game controller may be the first of its kind, but it won’t be the last. We can only hope that this kind of innovation will translate into more widespread accessibility in gaming culture. (Via: Prusaprinters)
