robyns tut's insight:

Is it really worth changing the type of controller, why not just work on something a bit more hands free. What makes this controller better than the ones already on the market? it would also be good to explore if this controller can made to work with play stations ans wii. -Tanah

10 Ingenious Inventions for People With Disabilities

10 Ingenious Inventions for People With Disabilities | science, technology, south africa, rhodes university, grahamstown, rhodes university journalism, gadgets, environment, | Scoop.it
These adaptive devices help improve the lives of people living with disabilities, and they illustrate how far assistive tech has come.

robyns tut's insight:

This shows hoe growing technology increases to help people with and without disabilities. Compared to Rhodes that has limited access and help for the dissabled, these inventions offer great support overcoming these obstacles. A story can be done on why these objects are not made readily available to more disabled people.
