Modder creates single-handed Xbox One controller
Ben Heck's latest mod will be donated to Able Gamers Foundation.
Celebrity console modder Ben Heck has created a single-handed Xbox One controller mod, designed to be accessible for gamers with a disability preventing them from using two hands.
The creation of the controller will be chronicled on this Friday's installment of Newark Element14's The Ben Heck Show. A teaser for the program gives a first glimpse at the unit, as do the images posted above and below.
The controller, which features the left-trigger on its backside next to the battery, is designed for right-handed individuals because, "that's the most common request," Heck said. It's not clear if Heck also plans to create a left-handed Xbox One controller or if he will produce more than one unit.
Heck is donating the controller to the Able Gamers Foundation, a charity aimed at making video games more accessible for those with disabilities. This is not the first time Heck has a created a single-handed controller, as he did the same for the Xbox 360 years ago, completely overhauling the controller in the process.
