What is this product?
This is a modified Playstation 5 controller with an attached external housing with (4) 3.5mm jacks. Each one is fully reprogrammable to any input on the controller and is designed to be used with additional external switches. By having 4 jacks on the housing, the user can still operate the controller as normal, while also utilizing up to 4 switches. This is ideal for gamers with limited mobility challenges.
Who benefits from this design?
Any gamer with limited mobility. For example, oftentimes gamers can hold the controller and use the primary buttons like the DPAD or action buttons, but they are unable to operate the triggers/shoulders easily on the topside of the controller. With this device, you can plug in up 4 switches into the housing, which can be programmed to any function. In this instance, one could program them for right trigger, right shoulder, left trigger, and left shoulder. This would allow the gamer to use the controller as intended, while also being able to access 4 additional switches to operate the otherwise inaccessible inputs.

What is Evil Controllers Accessible Gaming Division?
We have been making accessible gaming devices for over 15 years. We specialize in the assessment of the body's range of motion and then we apply our knowledge and previous experiences to tailor make a controller specific to the gamer's needs. Sometimes a design can simply be a modified controller with additional buttons and inputs, or it can even be transformed into a box, like an arcade-style controller. After understanding the user's range of motion and strength, we can relocate inputs, enlarge or reduce the size of these buttons, change the sensitivity required to press it, or even a hybrid of designs.
We believe there should be no gamer left behind and all should be able to participate in their gaming communities without judgment or disadvantages. Our Evil Technicians are experienced in custom controllers and are pioneers behind the innovation for accessible gaming. We are passionate about full inclusion for gamers and believe that each controller, each story, truly makes a difference in gamers' and families’ day-to-day lives. The social connection and enjoyment experienced in a range of games is a proven need and we are here to make accessible gaming a commonly known thing. We rely on the community to help spread the word as many gamers do not realize there is an opportunity to game or game more enjoyably, regardless of their limitations, disabilities, or disease.
