Custom PlayStation 3 interface helps disabled man game again

ps3augmented.jpg

A young man calling himself “KitsuneYume” had this PlayStation 3 interface custom manufactured that allows him to control the vast majority of the buttons and toggles that make gaming possible. An array of widgets, including even a tongue-controlled toggle, were designed by Mark Felling of Gimpgear.us, maker of custom controllers for the disabled like “Sip & Puff Mouth Joysticks” and “Head Tracking Mouse Gaming” systems. (How can you not love a company that has a whole section titled “Pimp Your Wheelchair“?)
